If you are a developer or fan of Google products in general, it’s time to get excited. Google IO is right around the corner, and registrations for 2014 are now being accepted. Google IO takes place in San Francisco at the Moscone West Convention Center on June 25th and 26th. If you are one of the people who is able to get out there and has a spare 900 bucks laying around, you can go ahead and sign up right now!
Generally, all hell breaks loose at registration time and people rush to buy up the super-limited amount of tickets that are available. It’s a dusty trail full of bad times, disappointment, and crying. But, this year is a little bit different. Instead of getting your hopes up and then being crushed, Google has put together a type of system that is kind of like a raffle. You sign up and submit your information between today and Friday, April 18th, and Google will randomly select applicants to be able to purchase passes and attend. The process is completely random, and although your hopes may still be crushed, knowing that you have the exact same chances as everyone else eases the pain a little bit more. Make sure that you have money ready, because if you get picked, your Google wallet will be charged immediately. Tickets are non-transferable once they are issued to you.

To get in, you have to be at least 15 years of age. Anyone under the age of 18 will be required to show a signed parental consent form or have a parent or guardian with you when you check in. Anyone who is a student or staff member at an accredited high school or college can get a $300 discount on their ticket, but you will be required to show a proper school ID along with the standard form of identification required for everyone to have at the Google IO checkin. If you don’t bring your ID, they won’t let you in at all, and no refunds will be given. If you do need a refund in advance, the cut-off date is June 1st.
If you aren’t one of the lucky people to win this Google lottery, or you simply don’t have the funds to attend, you can always catch up on all of the live streams and recorded videos that will be coming out of the event. There will also be tons of news and updates posted on the web during the event, and I’m quite sure that a lot of it will even be covered right here. Until then, you can hype yourself up and get ready by checking out all of the cool stuff on the Google IO website.
