    I registered for the Seattle, WA instance of this on December 9, but haven't received a confirmation yet.

    If you have registered, for which location? Have you received a confirmation yet?

    I registered yesterday for the Chicago one.
    I got the email stating they received my request, but I have not received a confirmation as of yet.

    When did registrations open up for this event?
    As I was pretty surprised that the New York event was already sold out, but no other city and that now 24 hours later, no confirmation.

    I would think it would be:

    Query: Is there space available?
    Yes: Send Confirmation, take away one seat
    No: Send our apologizes, and recommend the next closest city as an option.

    Are they picking and choosing based on the answers to the questions on the signup form?

    Seems like it. I registered for the London one yesterday evening around 20:00. At that time London wasn't full. I got my confirmation email literally 1 minute later to say this is just a reciept of my application - it's not a "Yes" at this point. "Cool..", I thought - at least I got in before it said Full!

    Anyhow - when I checked the website around 23:30, it said London was full :rolleyes:.

    To date, I have not recieved a "Yes" (has anyone?!?) so I guess they're not doing a 'first come, first served' basis but may be selecting based on other criteria.

    We'll see...

    I registered for Seattle on Oct 9 as well (knowing ahead of time that it's full). Here's the confirmation I got:

    Interesting in an probably unfortunate (for me) sort of way, as I didn't even get that.

    The invitation hit my email account at 12:03 AM this (Friday) morning, and I got my 'this is not a confirmation' receipt at 5:48 AM this morning. If you signed up yesterday, how did you learn of it?

    I saw London was full at the similar time...:mad:
    But I registered anyway, then sent me an email to say that I am put into the waiting list.

    Hope I can attend it.

    Well it is now Sunday.

    I have only received the email that they got my request..

    I still have not gotten a confirmation that I can attend (and hopefully details on WHERE in Chicago it will be), nor have I gotten a message that I was added to a waiting list.

    Hopefully by the end of next week, we will hear something.
    I feel sorry for those that have to make travel plans to attend.

    Me neither. I've concluded that given the total lack of response my chances of getting in to the Seattle version of this event are pretty much zero unless there are a huge number of last-minute cancellations. At least I have no travel plans to cancel.

    Still haven't gotten a confirmation here.

    Two emails to the contact email address, asking for some sort of confirmation (either I can go, or I am on a waiting list) still have gone un-answered.

    And I have confirmed at least 15 other people that submitted to the Chicago event, that haven't heard either way. And we all submitted with in a few hours of the email that was sent out, before any "full" notice was posted.

    Other people that have applied late, got Waiting List confirmations with in minutes.

    Just received my denial for the tech talk in LA. I registered before the page showed that it was full, but apparently being a paying developing company wasn’t good enough. :(

    Same deal here - I didn't get a second email... so I guess I never got onto the London list.

    Oh well... :rolleyes:

    Nothing here either.

    I was thinking after submitting my reservation request - Do you think Apple is evil enough to give priority to those who said they develop paid/commercial apps?

    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me the format of the Tech Talks.. a bit like a lecture?

    ie: sit there with a pad/laptop and scribble away?

    Thanks.

    Got mine for Hong Kong along with 2 of my employees.

    The agenda is on the website. It looks like a presentation type format with some hands on.

    Looks like they are approving / rejecting in the order of the scheduled date of Talk. From what I read online people already recving confirmations were LA, then Austin, and yesterday Chicago. New York should be next then Toronto. I got denied for Chicago Yesterday (I was wait listed as I registered after it was full) So not even on a list anymore and I guess they aint adding any more dates there. I also signed up for Toronto before it was full, so there is still hope.

    I talked with someone who said they were originally on the wait list, but then was invited to attend at the last minute.

    He said that both developers who had apps in the store, and developers who hadn't yet finished apps, were in attendance.

    The talks were very similar to the WWDC iPhone sessions, but updated with some new information. Still all confidential material, as the new NDA hasn't yet been officially posted by Apple.

    Biggest message I heard about from the tech sessions: read the HIG (human interface guidelines) front-to-back, design the app to look good and work well before starting to code, and look at all the example code. Developers are still inventing poor UI's where the HIG already shows a better way, and coding broken stuff with poor performance, where somewhere hidden in the example code on Apple's dev site is code that works much better.
