In January, we found out that Google I/O 2018, the search giant’s annual conference for developers, will again occur at the Shoreline Ampitheatre in Mountain View, California. This year the conference will take place between May 8 and May 10, which is a bit earlier than usual, but nonetheless, should be an exciting couple of days as is the case every year. Last week, Google opened registration to attend the event, but you’ll have to act quickly if you want a chance to go. The form closes this week.
So how does the application work? You are going to need some luck on your side. Google is going to randomly select applicants as they usually do, so it’s essentially a lottery. It’s a little bit of a long shot due to limited space and high demand, but there’s still the chance you’re picked to attend.
All you have to do is sign into your Google account and submit a form, which can be accessed through February 27 from the source link. You’ll need to include a deposit, and if you’re selected, you’ll have to pay the full price for a ticket, which is nowhere near cheap. The general admission ticket to attend is $1,150 and the academic one costs $375. Keep in mind there’s no turning back if you change your mind.
Google will contact you the day after the form closing (so February 28) if you’re chosen. If not, you won’t be charged the deposit. You don’t have long to try. Good luck!
