Google I/O registration opens to developers in March

Summary: With the pending releases of the Chromebook Pixel and Glass, Google I/O 2013 is going to be one of the hottest tickets in San Francisco.


Alerting all Android and Chrome developers: registration for Google I/O is scheduled to open up on Wednesday, March 13 at 7AM PDT.

The Internet giant made an ever-so-brief announcement via the event's landing page on Friday.

To recall, Google announced back in December that the 2013 I/O show would be on parade at Moscone Center West in San Francisco between May 15 and 17.

In today's announcement, the Mountain View, Calif.-based company didn't add any more details about pricing or the agenda. The only other notes were reminders to potential attendees to have their Google+ and Google Wallet accounts ready for the registration process.

Some of the big introductions last year included the Google Compute Engine infrastructure service, the Nexus 7 tablet, the now defunct Nexus Q, and Android 4.1 (a.k.a. Jelly Bean) -- not to mention Google Glass.

This year's show is already expected to be big following yesterday's confirmation of the Chromebook Pixel laptop as well as today's news about Google Glass availability later this year.

Google Glass, in particular, still remains a bit of a mystery to developers and consumers alike.

But with patent application specs as well as pricing leaking out, it's very likely that the Goog will have more information about what developers can do with the fancy specs during the expo.

  • Hope devs have something to get excited about

    I think it's going to be a huge show this year and not just because of Google Glass :) There are obviously some things we see coming from a mile away, but I think developers will really come out of the annual developer conference feeling like this was more about them than ever before. When Time magazine made "the protester" its person of the year a while back, I immediately thought "the mobile app developer" is next. These people are changing the world around us (and finally getting paid what they're worth thanks to opportunities from the likes of Airpush - - and others) and deserve to have as many resources as possible at their disposal in return for their efforts in the app ecosystem. So, all told, I don't think any aspect of Google I/O 2013 will be a bust - at least not for Android developers.
