Google I/O is taking place about a month later than usual, but registration time is right around the corner. The official page has just gone live revealing the day interested parties can register for the event and exactly how much they can expect to pay. Spoiler alert: prices have skyrocketed. Beginning at 7AM PDT on March 27th, hopeful attendees can pony up $900 to reserve a spot at the developer-focused conference. The whopping registration fee nearly doubles the cost of last year’s show. The price drops for students — down to $300 — but that’s triple the rate offered previously.

The high prices are unlikely to deter those looking to be a part of I/O. The event sold out in less than an hour last year. So start counting your pennies now, you’ll want to jump on top of registration as soon as it opens if you plan on making it out to the Moscone Center this year.
