Google I/O Sells Out In 20 Minutes

In June Google is hosting the annual Google I/O at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. If you are planning to go then hopefully you were quick enough to snap up a ticket - as all 5,500 of them sold out in just 20 minutes!

"While we're overwhelmed with the interest and enthusiasm around Google I/O, we know it can be very disappointing and frustrating when an event sells out this quickly," Vic Gundotra, senior vice president of Engineering at Google, posted on Google+.

But to try and combat this disappointment, Google is offering a variety of extras for those unable to make it. The Keynote and all key sessions will be streamed live. All of the sessions can be viewed in video format 24 hours after the event. And Google I/O Extended viewing parties will be happening the world over.

Google describes the parties as "Part viewing party and part community building" and goes on to explain that "Google I/O Extended are free events focused on livestreaming parts of Google I/O. Depending on location, the event could also include local developer demos and other speaker sessions."
