  • I was really, really looking forward to going for the first time this year. But unless $COMPANY gets a big cash infusion it's just too much money for the trip, hotel and entry fee.

    And we scheduled a short trip to NC before YAPC was announced. Of course, they conflict. So looks like no conferences for me this year. Shit.

    Maybe I need to go to work for a big company where conference fees like this aren't even a speck of dust on a drop in the bucket.

    • Well, working for $BIG_COMPANY doesn't always mean that they'll automatically let you go. I got the big thumbs down this year because of 'the budget'. I did get to go to OSCON last year though (thanks to $BIG_COMPANY) - I suspect it will be the last one for a while...

        I suspect that attendance will be way down in general. Whether it's $SELF or $BIG_COMPANY footing the bill, all the objects in question seem to have a much smaller value in their ->{available_cash} attribute this year.

        Honestly, I wonder how OSCON can survive this sort of thing given that I suspect the fixed costs (the space and staff) are probably fairly significant.

        Well, see y'all at YAPC this year ;)
