That’s a milder way of putting it than first occurred to me. The
hefty price increase will probably keep me home this year. Even with
a 15% discount as an attendee last year plus a 40% discount as an
employee at a non-profit organization, it would cost me 2x as much to
attend this year as last!

Yeah, it costs about 6 hours of coding in Rails. right?

:wink:

I will agree it’s not cheap, but it’s certainly not “hefty”. There
are plenty of other tech conferences costing several times more than
RailsConf (see MySQL and Web 2.0 conf for starters). Plus, at 55% off
your only paying $400. $100 a day - not bad for tech training.

At least it’s not in some remote, exotic location that costs $1k just
to fly to…

Anyways, just my $0.02.

Very true. But the base price increase over last year ($200) is
322.5% (early bird @ $645) or 397.5% (standard @ $795)! Seems very
hefty to me. Maybe I’m just cranky, though, because the total price
(conf. + travel + hotel) is beyond my budget right now.

Well, the discounts don’t stack, you can take a 15% or a 40%, but not
both.

In any case, the airfare and hotel (and dinners) will come to more
than the conference itself. Not a bad deal overall. I don’t know
why they even bother having a “Regular” rate – the “Early Birds” are
all there are, right? :wink:

Strangely, I registered for RailsConf2006 on 2/2/2006 and now
RailsConf2007 on 2/2/2007. Is there some Groundhog tie-in to Rails
that I’ve missed?

Sorry everyone; looks like I botched my math by using $200 instead of
$400 as the base price for RailsConf 2006. The corrected increases
are 161.25% (early bird) and 198.75% (standard). Definitely not as
hefty as I thought.
