Google I/O 2017 ticket application period scheduled for Feb. 22-27

Getting tickets for the Google I/O developer conference has always been a thing of difficulty. In 2014, Google changed up ticketing for the conference and started a lottery system. Google would randomly select roughly 5,000 applications and grant these developers the opportunity to purchase a ticket for I/O.

We’re not sure how things are going to go this year, but chances are it will be the same lottery system we’ve seen over the last couple years. This year’s application period is going be between February 22 10 am PST through February 27 5 pm PST…

Update 2: The puzzle has been solved. No free tickets to be had. :(

Update: Google’s I/O website has been updated for I/O 2017, although no details have been provided yet.

The Google Developers Twitter account tweeted out a cryptic message (with a link to a cryptic website) this afternoon, which means that Android and Google developers might have a chance to win something important — although we have no idea what that might be yet. The use of the ‘#savethedate’ hashtag, however, suggests that this might be related to Google I/O 2017.
