Joel -

Just so we're clear - Hosts will be in the hallways directing people, and
some at the doors.
See https://us.pycon.org/2013/community/volunteer/tutorial_hosts/ for more
info.

Online registration for tutorials appears to still be live, and I would
expect it to be live through Monday (though I don't know, am not sure).

I don't know  but my expectation would be that when the onsite registration
team & computers take over control of registrations that's it - one data
source only!
I'd expect "online" registration to go away sometime between Monday
afternoon/evening and Tuesday afternoon/evening.

In other words, if you're not registered by Sunday, I think you're pushing
your luck.

According to the registration screen at this moment, the only sold-out
class is "Python for Data Analysis".
