It looks like I’ll be joining you during the sprint! Is it reasonable to go ahead and book flights now, or should I wait for the campaign to reach a certain amount of funding? My costs will be covered my by company, so it’s not dependant on the campaign. For accommodation, are we all going to try to book the same hotel, or should I just go ahead and find something myself?
