Making a conference happen requires a fair amount of money. To help us keep the ticket price low, we're supported by many lovely people.
It’s important for us to make this an inclusive event - and we can’t ignore money in that discussion. Conference tickets can sometimes be pretty expensive, because some of them are priced with the idea that an attendee’s employer will pay for them. But for many developers, that is not the case.
We’re a not-for-proft event, so we depend on ticket sales. But to keep the price affordable and still cover all the other things that make a conference great, we rely on selected supportes. We want to introduce some of them here today, and say thanks.
