You may be aware that registration for this year’s Google I/O conference opened earlier today, and based on the fact that it sold out in a mere 28 minutes is probably a good indication of how the event has increased in popularity over the last couple of years. It’s certainly not cheap to attend the conference either, with tickets costing $900 each.
Now, if you’re not familiar with Google I/O, it is an event that the search giant stages each year and is developer-focused. At the event you can expect to hear and see highly technical, in depth sessions on building web, mobile and also enterprise applications using Google’s open web technologies – such as Android.
According to the guys over at Droid Life, many users were faced with messages such as ‘checking for tickets’ when trying to book their place at the event and eventually timing out, unfortunately with a fair few unable to get them due to the massive demand.
This years I/O event takes place between the 27th and 29th of June, if you’re interested in getting further information about the event, make sure you check out the official Google I/O site.
