    Same for me - paid 5$, then PayPal didn't redirect me to back to meetup and didn't finish RSVP!

    Are you still conducting this over hangout? I'm remote and interested in learning

    May 7, 2014

    • Shangxuan Vivian Z.

      yes, but we don't offer remote sharing. We want to focus on in classroom experience.

    Dear Friends, Professor Ramnath has something urgent coming up and can't make it tonight. I will go ahead to reschedule this event. I am sorry for the inconvenience. See you next time.

    Hi. When I RSVP, PayPal took a long time to respond and I was told to check back later to see if the payment went through. I have since checked my PayPal account and it showed the transaction was completed. But I am still not on the list. Vivian, could you please include me in the list of people going? Thanks.

    Hi, Vivian. Same as what happened to others, Paypal redirected to me back without updating my RSVP. Please check and add me to the list. Thanks for your time putting it together. -Lily.

    Since I can't eat pizza and I never eat after 6pm, may I be excused from the $5?

    February 25, 2014

    • Shangxuan Vivian Z.

      If we don't offer food, people leave the events around 7:45-8:00pm because they were starving and went to the meetup right after work. It is a pity if you kept seeing people leaving events for this reason. Every event takes tons of effort.

      Ah, I see! Now I understand, it's that I'm not your target group. Right now I don't ever want to stay much later than 8 on a weeknight, no matter how well fed I am :). There are alot of owls in NYC for sure though!

  • Ilan M.

    Will the hangout link be published ahead of time, in case we want to join from home?

    I paid for the Hadoop meetup but I was unable to attend. Can you apply my payment from the Hadoop payment to this one?

    April 22, 2014

    • Shangxuan Vivian Z.

      Hi Allister, I got $4.5 from every RSVP and it is usually not enough to pay for the food. So I used the money to offer nice meal for people who came. That is the reason I can't apply the credit. Thank you for understanding that.
