    I'll recheck with Microsoft to see the total capacity of the room. So I'll adjust accordingly.

      @Grant - no standing room, it literally is a waiting list. As for you taking Danielle's ticket, we can see if that's possible. MS already has the list of attendees so if people don't show, we can see if we can let you in.

      Would like to attend as well, but I will cede my place in line to someone else as I have been playing with Angular 2 on my own and someone else would probably get more out of the presentation.
