The Clojure/conj tickets will go on sale in 14 minutes at 3pm Eastern. If you have any problems signing up, let me know. https://ti.to/cognitect/clojure-conj-2016

dpsutton18:08:17

The email mentions that the conj will end on Saturday at 12:30pm, which is around lunch. Is this a typo?

cognitect_lynn18:08:42

no, we're doing a half day on Saturday.

dpsutton18:08:57

oh. Full day friday, half day saturday?

cognitect_lynn18:08:12

Full day thursday, Friday. 1/2 on sat

dpsutton18:08:26

oh of course. I'm sorry. Got my dates confused. Thanks so much

cognitect_lynn19:08:10

no worries, I get my dates confused all the time!

dpsutton19:08:26

I was thinking weekend rather than the actual dates. Ticket purchased. Thanks lynn

cognitect_lynn19:08:47

You're welcome!

seancorfield19:08:26

Nice, means we can guarantee getting an afternoon/evening flight out on Saturday!

eggsyntax19:08:28

Hmm. I'm not quite sure what to say when it asks who I want to assign my grant donation to....I chose "I don't know yet" for now... ie it's trying to apply the same process of getting ticket assignment details to the donation. Awkward 😜

alexmiller19:08:56

yeah, you can just put whatever there

alexmiller19:08:15

just put your own name so we know who it’s from

hunter19:08:36

early bird is sold-out already?

seancorfield19:08:10

I just got an EB ticket ($350, right)…

cognitect_lynn19:08:25

@hunter yeah, they went quickly this year

hunter19:08:32

15 minutes, i'd say so

alexmiller19:08:46

many are “locked” which means people started but haven’t finished

alexmiller19:08:58

not all those may complete and they will come back into the pool in 15 minutes or so

hunter19:08:27

i got one, i just think it's wild they're all locked up/sold

alexmiller19:08:07

there were 75 in the early bird pool

eggsyntax19:08:35

If early bird sold out that fast, it makes me wonder if /conj will actually sell out this year.

eggsyntax19:08:42

😄 Out of idle curiosity, what's the cap on tickets?

cognitect_lynn19:08:07

@eggsyntax We have a big space... so around 600-ish.

eggsyntax19:08:28

<- goes to buy five extra tickets to scalp outside the venue

alexmiller19:08:28

Conj has been in the 500 range in past years

dpsutton19:08:52

I've already got mine on stubhub

alexmiller19:08:50

early birds are really gone now
