Google has just announced this year’s Google IO dates! Get ready and set your calendars for June 25-26, 2014. Senior Vice President of Google Sundar Pichai has just broken the news and we can’t be more excited to see what Google has in store for us this year.

For those who don’t know, Google IO is the Search Giant’s biggest event. It takes place yearly, in San Francisco. The main focus of the event is to educate and prepare developers to adopt and improve on Google apps and services, but Google has turned it into more than that.

Google IO is also known as the event where Google announces some of its biggest projects, devices and services.

What will we see at Google IO?

We can’t really say right now, but Google IO is always big. We can definitely expect some big news related to Chromecast, Chrome OS and Chromebooks. These are growing at insane rates, so we are sure Google will have some good news for Chromies at Google IO.

Of course, we will also see news related to pretty much everything Google has to offer. Android, Chrome, Google+, Google Maps and Google Drive are a few of the big ones.

Attending Google IO

Attending Google IO isn’t easy. There is a lot of demand, which means tickets usually fly in less than an hour. Even if there are tickets, Google’s site gets so overcrowded it’s nearly impossible to even go through the checkout process.

This is why Google is changing the method this time around. They will simply ask developers to show their interest in attending (sign up). Shortly thereafter, Google will select attendees randomly and notify you.

Sounds better than destroying your keyboard and mouse trying to refresh a page, right?
