Google might have left its heart in San Francisco as the dates for its annual Google I/O developers conference were announced. Once again, the event will take place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, this year on June 25th and June 26th. One thing different will be the registration process. Unlike past years where those seeking tickets had to use the same process reserved for rock shows, Google will ask you to indicate your desire to attend. From that group, random people will be selected to attend the show. Google is expected to introduce the new registration process next month. Last year, the show took place in May.
"This year we’re making some changes to registration, so you won’t need to scramble the second registration opens. We'll be implementing a new system, where you can submit your interest to attend Google I/O 2014. Successful applicants will then be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter."-Sundar Pichai, SVP, Google
As usual, we expect Google to launch its Google I/O app a few weeks prior to the show. The app helps those attending get from place to place without getting lost, and allows those who can't attend, view live streaming video of presentations made inside the rooms. For those who will actually be attending, a new feature last year allowed your device to scan the badges of other attendees using NFC, thus allowing you to network on the go
