Registration is now open! Gogogogo!

Update 1: Academic tickets (for students) are now sold out.

Update 2: Looks like it's completely sold out now. That's a new record - 25 minutes (ish). Congrats to all who got a ticket!

Update 3: Vic Gundotra hit up G+ to let users who didn't get registered in time know that they won't be missing out on all the fun. We can expect all key sessions and the keynote to be streamed live, available for viewing after 24 hours, and Google I/O Extended viewing parties will be happening all over the world. Badass.

The day has finally come, folks - registration for Google I/O 2012, which is happening June 27-29 in San Francisco, opens today. If you plan on trying to catch an in, you better be on the ready at 7:00 AM PT on the dot, as this conference usually sell out double-quick. In fact, last year's event sold in less than an hour, and we expect the same of this year (if not less).

Entry fees will set you back a cool $900 each, which is double what it was last year. Of course, we expected a price hike this go around, as El Goog decided to make I/O 2012 a three-day event instead of just two. If my math is correct, that's one-third more awesome that ever before.

In order to register, you'll have to be signed up for both Google+ and Google Wallet, so if you haven't already done so, you better get on that before registration begins. Once you have that knocked out, hit the link below to grab your way in.

If you happen to miss the window of opportunity or the conference sells out faster than normal, don't fret - we'll be there live, so you can keep it locked on AP for all of the happenings at I/O 2012.

Good luck!

    Who are the lucky few from AP that get to go?

    • Cameron Summerson

      That'd be Artem. He'll be there feeding the rest of the team all of the details.

      That lucky bastard.

      • Tim

        Hah. That cheapass ;)

        I figured he'd go with 2 or 3 of you guys.

          Hey Artem, let's grab a beer, I got a ticket.

  • Awesome Sauce

    This summer is jam packed for me. Ill go next year. Im sure the tech in 2013 will be all about 8 core infinity screen phones or some other BS.

  • Felix

    Well. Your math is NOT correct. Three days are 50% more than 2, not 33,3%.

    Now do I get a ticket for that piece of knowitall? :)

    I'm not saying I'd kill to go...but I wouldn't recommend leaving me alone with a knife and somebody holding a ticket...

    I'd love to go but I'm a little on the poor side right now. I expect Google will be sharing the session videos on YouTube like they did for 2011.

  • ThePatio

    Tried three times to get a ticket all three times it eventually said no tickets available at this time...mmm

    • Haha

    F*ck this sh*t, a live stream can never be as good as being there. People don't go there because of the keynote, and the sessions, but to talk with other devs, socialize with people of the same interests, and such.

    Problem is, that most probably someone(s) purchased huge quantities of tickets, and now are selling them for lot higher prices (see those cases of Google I/O tickets being sold on eBay for 2x of the original price).

    It would have sold out quicker and more fairly if the registration system were not so lame. They lied to people saying there were no tickets trying to by them right after 7am PDT when they didn't sell out until 25 minutes later. How do you sell out and ask people to retry?!

    You'd think the biggest web company would know how to make a scalable web application and an fair, honest user experience. Best not to assume silly things like that.
