How many of you managed to score Google I/O tickets in the 59 minutes registration was open? Given the events record sell-out time, I’m guessing not too many. For everyone who missed out, stop pawning your valuables and hoping to win one of those $2,000 dollar Ebay bids and start marking your calenders for Wednesday, March 16th. That is the starting date for Google’s “we love developers” Last Call for Google I/O contest.
The contest will span 10 days, feature 10 developer challenges and 100 chances to win Google I/O tickets. Each day will feature a new challenge which will be posted at a designated time. Focusing on various Google developer products, each challenge will last 24 hours and consist of two rounds. 24 hours will fly by so I suggest you developers bring your A-game if you wish to win one of the 10 Google I/O tickets that will be awarded each day.
Are you curious as to what the challenges will be? Unfortunately I have no idea what they may have up their sleeves but to give you a quick idea, here is the 10 day line-up that was posted a couple of days ago on the official Google Code Blog:
- March 16 – Android, 9:00 am
- March 17 – Chrome, 9:00 am
- March 18 – App Engine, 9:00 am
- March 21 – YouTube APIs, 9:00 am
- March 22 – Game Developers, 9:00 am
- March 23 – Google Maps / Geo, 4:00 pm
- March 24 – Commerce, 9:00 am
- March 25 – Developer Tools / GWT, 9:00 am
- March 28 – Accessibility, 4:00 pm
- March 29 – Google Apps / Enterprise, 4:00 pm
Kind of makes me wish I was a developer. I would enter for the challenge alone. Of course winning Google I/O tickets wouldn’t be so bad either (would save me from selling my dog*). So are you up for the challenge? Start your coding engines, the race begins in T-Minus 6days and counting.
Contest is valid in the 50 United States and the District of Columbia with winners being announced on April 4.
