This year, Google will randomly pick attending developers
Google has revealed that its annual I/O conference will take place on June 25-26 in San Francisco.The announcement was made by Google’s Senior Vice President Sundar Pichai via Google+. This year’s developer conference will be held at Moscone West.
The company hasn’t exactly updated its official event site, but Pichai said that there would be additional information about registration and other details sometime next month.
As a novelty, this year, Google will implement a new lottery-based registration system where attendees will be picked randomly from the pool of developers that have expressed an interest in joining the event.
This is due to the fact that, in previous years, the tickets for the event quickly ran out, leaving a lot of people upset.
Last year, the Google I/O took place from May 15 to May 17, which means that the 2014 edition will take place with a month’s delay by comparison.
For those who won’t be able to attend in person, Google will also set up a live stream.
