Mark your calendar: Google I/O 2018 will be held May 8-10

Google has opened up ticket purchases for Google I/O 2018, which will take place between May 8 and May 10 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA.

Google I/O is an opportunity for developers around the globe to come together and see demonstrations of all the new software features and APIs Google is working on. For consumers, it is also of notable interest as Google I/O is also typically where we get sight of the next version of Android.

General admission to Google I/O costs $1,150, similar to last year. Academic admission remains the same at $375 for full-time students, professors, faculty and staff at a high school or higher education institution. There is also a new “Community partners” tier at $750.

The specific themes called out by Google on the I/O landing page is Grow & Earn, Building on Mobile, and Beyond Mobile. The consumer-focussed keynote will be on Tuesday, May 8 at 10 AM and runs until 11:30 AM, before breaking out into the developer focused sessions.

You can apply for tickets here. Applications for tickets closes on February 27 at 5 PM PST.
