Google I/O Registration 2014

Google I/O Registration 2014

This year marks a significant change (improvement) on how Google I/O registration took place. Google originally announced a registration window in early April but was later clarified to be from April 15th to the 18th. Individuals wanting to register would enter into a lottery, which is scheduled to take place sometime today. The old system of ctrl + r or waiting for a spinner to ‘select an available ticket’ for you has been plagued with issues because of the large number of people wanting to register. In 2012 the registration process was completed within minutes.
