We told you last week that registration for Google’s 2016 I/O developer conference opened up to the public, and now it appears those that entered the drawing are receiving acceptance and denial emails. The lucky lottery entrants that have been accepted this time around, though, are apparently getting an error preventing them from registering…
The email reads:
Congrats! You’ve been selected to purchase a General Admission ticket for Google I/O’16.
Google I/O is a festival for developers and technologists. During I/O, you’ll learn about our latest product innovations and dive deep into code, all while networking with your peers and Google engineers.
Many users on the Google I/O community on Google+ are reporting that the final page of the registration process is showing the price as “NaN,” which, in computing, stands for “not a number”. Ignoring this error and clicking the “Pay & Register” button apparently doesn’t work and tells registrants that they’ve already registered.
Some users, however, are reporting that things are working smooth as butter. Let us know in the comments how the registration process — which costs $900 for standard tickets and $300 for students — is going for you. (Thankfully, members of the press don’t have to deal with this bug because we were invited and registered in advance.)
This process typically happens in waves, so if you’re not seeing an email in your inbox right this second I wouldn’t panic quite yet. If you’re going to be accepted, you’ll probably receive your email sometime over the course of the next 24 hours. And if you get a denial email — sadly many people do — keep in mind that we’ll be there to keep you updated as the event unfolds.
