Update, February 28, 2019 (12:38pm ET): If you wanted to apply for Google I/O 2019, you’re out of luck as the application window closed yesterday afternoon. If you did apply, though, check your inbox because Google is already notifying people if they received a ticket or not (via 9to5Google).
If you weren’t lucky enough to get into the developer conference, Google does a great job live streaming almost every session. This allows you to watch everything from the event at your leisure from the comfort of your home. Additionally, you can check for a local I/O Extended events and attend the conference remotely with other developers from your region.

Original post, February 21, 2019 (3:16pm ET): Google I/O 2019 is months away at this point but is closer than you might think. Today, registration applications are open if you’d like to try your luck at attending one of the biggest events of the year when it comes to all things Google.
Remember, this is an application to register, not an actual registration. Google will randomly select registrants from the no doubt thousands and thousands of applications it will receive from people all around the world.
You have until February 27, 2019, at 5:00 P.M. PST to get your application in.
Before you rush off to try your luck, keep in mind that if you do get into Google I/O 2019, it’s going to cost you a pretty penny: a single ticket is $1,150. If you are currently an active full-time student, professor, faculty, or staff of a high school or higher education institution, you could get a discounted ticket which knocks down the price to $375.
To fill out the application, you’ll need to give Google your credit card information. Google will place a temporary deposit hold on your account to complete the application. If you get in, the full ticket price will then be charged. If you don’t get in, the deposit hold will get returned to you within seven days after February 27.
