New registration system aims to avoid the usual rush for tickets
Android head Sundar Pichai has just announced the dates for the 2014 Google I/O developers conference. This year, things are a little later than usual and the event will be on June 25 and June 26.
Things are still at Moscone West, and like recent years the events will be lived streamed for everyone to watch. What has been changed is the registration system.
This time around, folks will be able to express their interest and selected participants will be chosen and notified. This should alleviate some of the hassles we've seen in recent years, where tickets sold out moments after they became available. It should also weed out the folks who go with the sole intent of selling any hardware giveaways on eBay, which happens far too often for our tastes.
We've got the rooms booked, and are ready for this year. Pichai says full details on just how to try your luck at registration will be coming next month.
