Google I/O is a developer conference hosted by Google where they have developers from all over the world come together for 2 days to discuss technical content and building the next generation of web, mobile and enterprise applications.
Google I/O is usually in high demand and this year’s tickets for the event were sold quickly enough causing server crashes and more. If you are a developer who wanted to go to the event but could not get a ticket, here is your chance to win free tickets for the Google I/O event to be held on May 10-11, 2011 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
