Google I/O is only a couple of weeks away and by now, if you haven't received an I/O lottery ticket, which started going out in mid March, you have probably given up on attending the conference. But hold your horses. It seems that Google still has a few open slots, probably after giving others who signed up the chance to buy a ticket and not hearing back from them. Their "no" could be your "yes."
Several users have reported to us getting an email from Google, giving them the chance to buy an I/O ticket between today and Monday May 9. That's short notice for managing travel and stay plans as well as work leaves and maybe even finding someone to feed your dog... WHATCHA TALKING ABOUT?! It's I/O. You get the email, you register. End of story. Everything else can be figured out.
Anyway, our dear colleague Sebastiaan Bakker (lucky b...uddy) got one of these invite emails and he's now going to I/O with Artem and David. So don't lose hope, your email might be heading your way anytime soon.
