Google I/O has historically always sold out in record fashion. Some years, it’s sold out in under a minute. To combat this, and make it a bit more fair to those that aren’t sitting at their desk refreshing the page over and over again, Google came up with the lottery. Essentially what happens here is you are given a few days to register your interest in attending Google I/O, which happens to take place May 18th through the 20th in Mountain View, CA instead of the usual San Francisco, CA.

Space is limited, as always. Although it’s likely to be not as limited this year seeing as they are doing Google I/O at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View.
