Today, registration for this year’s Google I/O Developer Conference was supposed to open, to let people sign up and stake their claim to get tickets for the show due to be held this summer in June. However, due to some technical issues, the registration window has been put off till next week, the Google Developers page on Google+ confirms. However, this year the registration window will run four days, so you’ll have a decent amount of time to register your interest before all hell breaks loose.
It’s a shame that the registration has been delayed, but much like purchasing a brand new Nexus device, I think we can all agree we’d rather see Google get it right, then simply get it done. Detailing why the registration window has been pushed back the Developers page on Google+ reads “We’re still working to make the registration process even easier for you, and it will now be open four days starting next week (opening next Tuesday and closing Friday).” Once the four-day period has finished, applicants will be selected at random and sent through confirmation emails with further details.
With a sizable time frame for people to register their interest, it’s likely that more people will be disappointed that they’ll be unable to attend this year. However, this is to be expected every year, after all it’s not like Google I/O is some small gathering; it’s one of the biggest (if not the biggest) developer conferences held every year in the world.
For Android fans this year, some important news surrounding Android will more than likely be announced on stage. We’ve got full details of Android Wear to look forward to and as always, the possible announcement of a new version of Android. Device announcements however, shouldn’t be expected as last year, the search giant finally bought Google I/O back to being what it was always intended to be; for developers, by developers. Let us know in the comments if you’re intending to head to I/O this year!
