The idea has caught fire, with 12,000 people completing applications so far and thousands more registering interest ahead of the March 20 deadline.Wellington Mayor Justin Lester said the city's tech sector has been growing at an annual rate of 14 percent over the past five years.Successful applicants get free flights to New Zealand and free accommodation during their four-day stay in Wellington.
