Ignite Ticket Swap

Hey hey! Ignite Boulder 23 is upon us, which means that before long, there will be folks out there in need of Ignite Ticket Swap. I originally built Ignite Ticket Swap for Ignite Boulder 21, and over the course of two events, it’s now helped ten slackers who missed the ticket buying window 🙂

As we wait for the last ticket to be sold, let’s see what’s new for Ignite 23


  • Far and away the most requested feature is “cancel” a listing — either an Extra ticket or a Need for a ticket. That’s finally possible.
  • It now  asks users to confirm before making an offer. This ought to cut down on awkward “oops I didn’t mean to swap that to you” messages.
  • After someone posts an extra ticket, we will ping them when new asks arise. This should help make sure anyone who is trying to unload a ticket has the best chance of doing so.

What features do you want to see for Ignite Boulder 24? I love the response this thing has gotten from the Ignite Boulder community, and I want it to be as useful as possible. By that same token, do you know of another event that sells out which might benefit from this? Post to comments or reach out to me (@woodardj) on Twitter!

      Hey Ryan, we heard ya loud & clear! We’re working hard to get the word out to anyone who bought too many, but we’re just a secondhand exchange and don’t have any extras ourselves. Sorry! And good luck!
