Here's some Google I/O math

There were 5,000 normal tickets and 500 student tickets available for the event.

According to +Vic Gundotra, there were over 6,000 requests a second, and that the event sold out in "just over 20 minutes".

That's 360,000 requests a minute, or 7,200,000 requests in 20 minutes.

If you can see those numbers and still say "I don't understand how I didn't get in", maybe you could spend that newly found free time thinking about math.
