How does the selection process work ?
We always receive far more applications than seats we can offer. We do restrict size for various reasons, including venue size, but mainly we want to make sure each participant has a great experience and can have some valuable time with Googlers. Therefore we do have a tough selection process. Our selection algorithm is based on the comprehensiveness of your answers in the sign-up form. So make sure you fill it out carefully :)
