The ticket sales for Congress this year have been a ultra fast, it is has been entertaining to watch friends fight against server crashes and load while trying to get tickets. This year I was lucky enough to avoid that ordeal, but it has made me think about writing bots to buy tickets. I think I would be trying to do so if I was going through the public sale.

I have previously watched a defcon talk about buying cars using a set of bots, I do wonder if there is a set of literature on doing this and dealing with mitigations.

There is also this talk, it might be good.
