Google I/O Conference 2011 Sells Out In 59 Minutes

google-io-logoNow in its fourth year, Google I/O is more popular than ever. The company’s annual conference for the developer community opened for registration today and promptly sold out … in just 59 minutes.

Vic Gundotra, Google’s VP of Engineering, posted successive tweets earlier today about the speedy sellout, saying it took 90 days and 50 days in 2009 and 2010, respectively, for the event to sellout.


No doubt that today’s sellout is a reflection of the Google’s growing popularity in the developer community (specifically re: Android), but surely it also doesn’t hurt that Google gave away free phones at I/O for the past two years.
