    Thanks David, but it already began.

    • David S.

      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

  • Lior G.

    Eventually can't join. My spot is free.

    February 11

    • 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

    • 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

  • 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

    • 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

    • 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

  • 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.

    February 12

  • Benjamin L.

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

    February 12

  • Madison H.

    Work came up :(

    February 12

  • Brian

    Any chance the attendance limit will increase?

    February 11

    • Jeff M.

      Sorry Brian, it is tightly capped for this one.

      February 11

    • Paddy

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

      February 11

  • 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

    • Jeff M.

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

      February 11

  • ManojKumar

    Will try

    February 10

  • Michelle S.

    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! :)

  • Ronald Miloh A.

    Curious why 'no boots'

    February 6

  • 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

  • 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

    • Jeff M.

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

      February 2

  • Gopal

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

    January 31

    • 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

    • Nick O.

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