    Thank you Ben & Jeff for organizing this! =)

    Thanks David, but it already began.

      I was probably the last waitlister to be bumped up and just found out when I opened my email this morning but I got the notice so late there was no way I could get down there in time myself or cancel. :/

      February 12, 2014

  • Lior G.

    Eventually can't join. My spot is free.

    February 11, 2014

    • David R

      It automatically assigns the next person on the waitlist without a +1 when someone cancels. The order of people on the right of this page is the order of the waitlist.

      February 12, 2014

    • David S.

      I can't cancel my RSVP but you can have my spot Marcia if you're already down in the area. No way I can make it from SF with this late of a notice.

      February 12, 2014

  • Marcia D.

    Ok. So with one hour before tour time, we won't know if the next people on the list can make it?

    February 12, 2014

    • David R

      If you have a spot, you can make it. If you don't have a spot, you have to hope enough people in front of you cancel before the event starts.

      February 12, 2014

    • David S.

      You can have my spot if you're down there since it pushed me up from the waitlist too late for me to drive there from SF.

      February 12, 2014

  • David S.

    Someone else can have my spot. It just pushed me up last minute from the waitlist and there's no way I can make it there from San Francisco in this short a time.

  • Benjamin L.

    To everybody who's coming, we're meeting at building 5 (The main building)

    February 12, 2014

  • Madison H.

    Work came up :(

  • Brian

    Any chance the attendance limit will increase?

    February 11, 2014

    • Jeff M.

      Sorry Brian, it is tightly capped for this one.

      February 11, 2014

    • Paddy

      Any chance of doing another tour of this facility seeing as there is such a long waiting list?

      February 11, 2014

  • Keila F.

    Would someone who's driving be able to provide a ride? I'm coming from SF or could meet you at any BART station.

    February 11, 2014

    • Jeff M.

      Am driving from SF, can offer ride. Will message you re details.

      February 11, 2014

  • M

    Will try

    Hi, I am interested in hardware manufacturing and will be very happy if I can visit Flextronics!

    Still probably need a ride (plans may fall through). If you're driving from SF or East Bay, happy to provide gas money & to make you laugh during the drive. Thx!

    Hi, if anyone is driving from SF or the east bay, would be great to get a ride! Happy to chip in gas money or a cupcake, just let me know :)

      Hi, I'm driving from Daly City. I'm a guest of one of the rsvp'd people. I can try crossing the bridge to east bay during morning rush hour, but I hope you can come to Daly City via Bart to meetup instead. Let me know.

      Hi David, happy to meet you at Daly City BART. Will send you my mobile # via Meetup. Thank you & see you soon! :)

    Curious why 'no boots'

    February 6, 2014

  • Sandra F.

    This will be a great tour. Any chance of opening up another tour for a second group? Great PR for Flextronics if they would. I, too, am on the waitlist.

    February 6, 2014

  • Nitin

    Any chance we can have a tour on a Saturday somewhere.? On weekdays I work every day and therefore cannot attend a single tour. I am sure there are others like me.

    January 31, 2014

    • Jeff M.

      We will look into this. One challenge is that many of the places we have visited don't operate on weekends.

    We tried this before, it is a big group. Any ideas to make this equitable and practical?

    January 31, 2014

    • Jeff M.

      Hi Gopal, given that we had to cancel the last Flextronics tour, we opened the rescheduled tour to folks who had signed up for that one first.

    I'm a little frustrated, not pissed, but frustrated. I get an email for a tour, which is the first I have received for the tour, and I am only offered a Waitlist position.

    What's up? How do other people get wind of a tour before I receive my first email about it?

    January 31, 2014

      Pretty sure Jeff was trying to offer spots first to the people who were signed up last time when the tour was canceled.
