Google I/O 2012

In all the excitement about the ArabNet Digital Summit and the Google Tech Workshop at AUB, we almost (but not quite) forgot about the upcoming registration for Google I/O 2012. If you remember, last year's tickets sold out in less than 1 hour!!

A lot has happened since then, and you will see all the innovation that has been happening in the tech world at one of the hottest conferences in the tech world.

If you want to be at the heart of it keep an eye on the registration page, since registration will be opening in a bit.

If you won't be able to make it, or if it sold out before you could register, don't worry! It will be available for live-streaming!
