Google announced that the ticket lottery for the I/O 2018 conference will open on February 22 at 10 am PST, which is 11:30 pm IST, February 22
Google has finally revealed the event dates for the Google I/O 2018 Developer’s conference for this year, and the revelation was one of a kind. Google on its Twitter account posted an image containing a series of binary code digits, and if you happen to be tech-savvy, the code solves to the google.com/io URL. Upon reaching the Google I/O website, you will be greeted with a Street view of the apparent reception venue of Google’s Developers building. But that’s not it, the Google I/O dates have to be dug up by following a series of clues. After exercising your brain muscles, you will work out the Google I/O Developer’s conference dates – May 8 to May 10. Google has now officially announced the dates and that the tickets will be available from February 22.
Negotiating the course of hints and puzzles that the California-based tech colossus has thrown in will take a lot of effort. As we said, after you reach the Street view of the Google Developers building, you will have to look around to spot clues that are related to the theme of ‘sisters’. Getting through the lobby will show you clues like the August 5 date on the calendar at the reception, which is the National Sister’s Day, the Sister Carrie book by Theodore Dreiser, the photo on TV is Three Sisters volcanic peaks in Oregon, and on the opposite wall is a painting of the Brontë sisters.
After collecting these hints, you’ll get your key to the enter into the next room. The calendar date of August 5 is merely a hint and not the exact date for the Google I/O, as the conference is held annually in the month of May. However, among these clues, one clue could perhaps be our guess to the name of next Android version, Android P. Among the teasers, there’s a pineapple cake kept as a clue. Continuing with the tradition of using dessert names for its Android versions, Google may have hinted that the Android P will be called Android Pineapple Cake (or Pineapple?). However, this is just a guess, and Google hasn’t officially said a word on it.
On its Google+ page, Google announced that the ticket lottery for the I/O 2018 conference will open on February 22 at 10 am PST, which is 11:30 pm IST, February 22. Alongside, Google announced the conference dates itself. It said, “You nailed it. #io18 will be held May 8-10 @ Shoreline Amphitheatre! Apply to purchase a ticket from 2/22, 10AM PST to 2/27, 5PM PST.”
