Google I/O 2014 dates confirmed, tickets to be randomly issued


Google has announced the dates for this year's Google I/O Conference. While the event will still be held at the Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco, the date has been pushed back and the registration process, revised.

The Google I/O 2014 will be held on June 25 to 26. Those who want to join can do so in person or remotely. The event will be streamed live and there will also be I/O Extended events in different corners of the globe.

"...quick note for those who want to join in person: this year we're making some changes to registration, so you won't need to scramble the second registration opens. We'll be implementing a new system, where you can submit your interest to attend Google I/O 2014. Successful applicants will then be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter. We'll be following up with more details from +GoogleDevelopers, so stay tuned," wrote Sundar Pichai, senior vice president at Google for Android, Chrome, and apps.

Google will release more details about the registration process in March.

Google I/O 2013 was held on May 15 to 17 at the same venue. The usual line of events is kicked off with the keynote address where Google reveals its latest innovations on its different platforms and of its various products.

There are also technical sessions where developers dive deep into different topics of their choice. Last year, there were more than 100 talks to choose from about Android, App Engine, Google+, Google Chrome among others.

The conference also allows attendees to attend coding sessions with the guidance of the company's experts. Developers who have questions about specific Google products also have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with insiders who know every portion of the code and SDK.

Of course, there is also the developer sandbox where applications built using Google technologies are featured. The creators of the apps will be at the venue to demonstrate and discuss how they came up with their products. Products such as the Nexus 7, Google Play Music All Access, Hangout app, and the Google Glass came into public's knowledge through the annual conference.

There are speculations that Google wants to control who gets in and make sure that most of the 5,000 souls who get inside Moscone are mostly developers.
