Reminder: Google I/O registration opens in less than 24 hours

Google’s annual I/O developer conference is right around the corner and tomorrow officially kicks off registration for a limited number of tickets that typically sellout within minutes of the site opening for registration. We told you previously that Google has now launched its Google I/O website with details about the travel, events, and FAQs, as well as the tips below for those planning to register.

You’ll need a Google+ account, a Google Wallet account, and $900 ($300 for Academic) to get yourself a ticket when registration opens at 7 a.m. PST tomorrow morning:

Update: General admission tickets appear to have hit eBay starting at $2,000, over double the original $900 ticket price.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you… Less than half an hour after going on sale, Google I/O tickets officially sold out for the event that Google promised will be “totally insane.” Tickets went on sale at 7 a.m. PST this morning. Approximately 27 minutes later, the registration page confirmed both academic and general admission tickets sold out. Google’s Vic Gundotra later confirmed tickets sold out in “a bit over 20 minutes!” with the registration page “experiencing 6,250 qps load on our servers at 7:01am!” He did note that for everyone else the keynote and key sessions will be live streamed.

Those of you that were lucky enough to get your hands on the $900 ticket will be attending the three-day event from June 27 to June 29 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. We will—of course—report on anything interesting out of the event this summer.
