Hi guys, I so wanted to go to Google I/O and I also got a ticket however , now I am having 2nd thoughts about attending it. I am more of a systems developer working at OS level and in security domain. What can I expect from the conference? Any advice will be really really helpful. I have a deadline to buy ticket by Monday.

My bet would be, with Project Fi announced today, that there's a Nexus 6 in the lunchbox for Google I/O attendees. Makes sense?

A throwback to Google I/O 2012... here is my count-down clock counting down to #io15   :)

Now I have just 43 days to find a way to get a ticket! Come on +Google Developers, give us a chance to win entry to Google I/O 2015! :)

Sharing again now that more events are popping up. It doesn't look like I'll be attending I/O this year, but I'll still work to keep the sheet up to date so you can have the best trip possible.
 
Since registration opens soon, I thought it would be a good time to start sharing the link to my spreadsheets again. Remember, if you have any information to share, it's open to the public, so feel free to add it. I monitor the spreadsheet pretty regularly to prevent and undo any griefing, and if it get's too bad, I'll have to implement away to submit events to be added instead of allowing everyone to add them themselves. 

The main spreadsheet for all of the events happening during the I/O week and the days before and after is: http://goo.gl/G0NS5l

The secondary spreadsheet that I try to keep updated with the latest schedule that's been published by Google in order to visually see the sessions next to each other to help figure out which one's your going to attend or any possible secret sessions, is here: http://goo.gl/WZ3C3r

The I/O events spreadsheet also has links to a calendar where the events will be added to to enable easy adding to your own calendar and schedules, as well as a map where all of the events are listed so you can see how close they are to each other (make's it easier to see which ones you can make it to by walking and which you'll need a Lyft/Uber).


If you have any suggestions for improvements, I'm always listening.

Thanks, and I hope this year goes even better than last.

The #io15extended map already features 200+ Extended events in 70 countries! Become an I/O Extended host too! #io15  
 
Anyone, anywhere can host or attend an I/O Extended event

With the help of hosts around the world, I/O Extended is truly a global event. We have 200+ events registered in over 70 countries. Check them out on the I/O website today (http://goo.gl/yXHl1b)!

Can I become an I/O Extended host?
Anyone interested in bringing their local developer community together can organize an I/O Extended event. The agenda is up to you: we encourage hosts to add value to their events by preparing other activities in addition to viewing the I/O live stream. Consider including code labs, hackathons, demos and Q&A sessions with local speakers, as these all tend to be popular with I/O Extended attendees. 

If you’re joining us as an I/O Extended host this year, here are the steps you should take to get started:
-- Read through the Organizer Guide to get tips and suggestions on how to host a successful event (http://goo.gl/IpFhJN). 
-- Register your public event on the I/O website for increased visibility (http://goo.gl/qPI7nG).
-- Join the I/O Extended 2015 Organizers Google+ Community to exchange ideas with other hosts (http://goo.gl/6mw4zE).

Should I attend an I/O Extended event?
Joining an Extended event is a great networking opportunity and much more fun than watching the live stream on your own! Last year we had 80K+ attendees worldwide. Make sure to search for your location on the I/O map to find Extended events happening near you in 2015 (http://goo.gl/yXHl1b).

Has anyone seen confirmation that there will be a challenge/puzzle of any form at all from Google? I emailed them and asked but received a response that just seemed canned which said there will be no more invites.

Don't get your hopes up for an N6, but if +Derek Ross is right, you lucky folks with #io15  tickets will probably be taking one of these home.
Derek Ross originally shared:
 
Is this the next Nexus phone? (that might be announced at IO?)

Random speculation here, but for the sake of hypebeasting something we haven't hypebeasted in a while, let's let the hypebeasting begin. Hypebeast.

This image is taken from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sz1glL7hKwo, a Project Fi video guide. Google generally doesn't use renders from unknown devices in their product videos. Project Fi only works with the Nexus 6, so why not use a Nexus 6 render, the phone that people have to use with the service right now? If you're not going to use the Nexus 6, then you better show the guide videos on another supported phone, right? That makes sense to me.

Could this phone just be a generic render? Sure. Absolutely. That takes the fun out of hypbeasting though. And we came here to hypebeast, dammit.

What if the Android phone pictured below is the upcoming Huawei Nexus? A cheaper Nexus, built for Project Fi? Now hear me out. Project Fi, as a marriage of cellular data and WiFi is cool, but that's still a tough sell, because you have to buy a $700 smartphone to use the service. Sure, you can finance the Nexus 6 through Fi, but you still end up having to pay for the cost of an expensive phone over the next two years.

What if the Huawei Nexus is a cheaper Nexus, built with Project Fi in mind. Right now, I can go out and buy an Moto E, Moto G or upcoming Huawei SnapTo on the cheap and jump on my MVNO of choice, except for Fi of course. While Fi isn't your typical MVNO, having your MVNO locked down to one expensive phone doesn't sound very appealing either.

Having a cheaper Nexus phone that worked on Project Fi sounds more Googly to me. Google is about service availability. Having a cheaper Nexus that's available to budget conscious people, you know, those looking to save money on their wireless bill, sounds a whole lot better to me than the current setup at launch.

So what do you think of my speculation? Plausible? Or I am reading too much into the generic render below, for the sake of hypebeasting? Who knows? Either way, I enjoyed confirming the launch of Half-Life 3. Cheers!

(The above is based purely on speculation, opinions, and having a good time.)

+John Burke Wow...  I was half kidding, but thanks!

The swag isn't why I so want to go to I/O, of course - being there is actually really important to this living I'm allegedly making - but I can't deny that it's a nice bonus.

I'm a bit surprised no one has mentioned the April 1 mod to the I/O site. Go give the Experiment a listen, and see if you can hear the difference.

It is shocking how much effort Google puts into their April Fools jokes. Don't get me wrong it is entertaining; Google Panada, Google Actual Cloud, Google Fibre Dial-Up, the thing with the party whistles... and that is just this year. I wonder if there is a Google April Fools team working year round to come up with these things.

My favorite this year is definitely reddit.com/r/thebutton though.

Sad day, this is my third time being rejected for I/O.  First was 2013 google wallet kicking me out, second 2014 lottery rejection, now this year :(

Does anyone know if Google looks at past application attempts to try and weight those who have tried and failed multiple times to get in, or is it really just a random number generator?

I am betting it is not totally random.  I bet they are looking to distribute the audience across countries, states, technology types, gender, race, etc.  The guy working in Silicon Valley may not have as good of odds as a developer from Wyoming or Luxembourg.  Just a theory.
