Those of you who failed to score a ticket for Microsoft's Build conference the first time will now get another chance.

A limited number of additional tickets to Build will go on sale starting Wednesday, May 15, at 9 a.m. PT. Scheduled to take place from June 26 to 28 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, the conference costs $2,095 for a full-price ticket. "Academic" tickets, which are still available in short supply, go for $995 a piece.

Tickets for the popular event initially went on sale on April 2 and apparently sold out after just a few hours. On April 3, Microsoft confirmed that the conference was officially sold out.

Microsoft didn't reveal how many spots would be available starting Wednesday. But given the speed at which the tickets were scooped up last month, those eager to attend will want to dive into the Build page as soon as 9 a.m. rolls around.
