    Hi, and thank you for RSVP'ing for the ZE Hackathon. We would love to have you. Please note that time is running out for Eventbrite signups, which are necessary to put on a well-organized event.

    I created a deeply discounted sign-up code for your use. It's good for ten (10) tickets. If you wanted a complimentary ticket, that can be arranged, but as a general rule, we have been asking everyone to chip in a nominal amount in order
    to filter out some of the noise free events generate.
