Google I/O 2016 Site Goes Live, Registration Lottery Begins March 8

 
We already know when Google I/O 2016 will take place — May 18th-20th — but now we know when registration begins. The all new Google I/O 2016 site is now officially live, and they’ve given all the details we need about the registration process.
Let’s dive right in:
  • Registration opens at 9AM Pacific March 8th and closes 5PM Pacific March 10th.
  • You don’t need to wake up early and race: Google is doing this year’s registration raffle style again, so you put your name into a hat and hope to have your name called later on.
  • Tickets cost $900 for general admission and $300 for students.
  • Students registering must have valid documentation to prove their enrollment, and your ticket cannot be converted to general admission.
  • You can not transfer or sell tickets, and you can not sign up on behalf of anyone else.
  • You can request a refund for a ticket if you decide you can’t make it, but you only have until April 29th to do so.
  • You will need a Google account to sign up.
There are many more things to know, so be sure to read the FAQ at the Google I/O site, and make sure you sign up once March 10th hits to make sure you have a chance. Let us know if you’ll be taking a crack at it!
