Hi, folks, Steve and I both had the same idea—to help make this process
less confusing for everyone! Here are my slightly more detailed
step-by-step instructions:

   1. Start by filling out the TPAC
   <https://www.w3.org/register/tpac2021virtual/form> registration form
   <https://www.w3.org/register/tpac2021virtual/form>.
   2. Look for an email from W3C Events Team titled "Welcome to TPAC 2021."
   3. Click on "Join the conference" button. (This takes you to a "TPAC
   2021" log-in form.)
   4. Enter your first and last name and your email.
   5. Click "Next." (This takes you to a form titled "Almost done!" Keep
   this form open.)
   6. Look for an email from W3C Events Team titled "Verification code [+
   plus your unique code]."
   7. Enter the code in the "Almost done!" form.

A few other helpful tidbits:

   - The verification code must be used within 24 hours of receiving it.
   - Once you are fully registered and logged in to the TPAC site, click on
   "All sessions" to get to a page that has a search field.
   - The "All sessions" page also lets you view events day by day and/or by
   category, such as "social event"
   - Each session has an "Add to my calendar" button.

Thanks,
Julie
