bitShares Developers Conference: What's it worth to you?
« on: January 16, 2014, 10:46:04 PM »

We are in the early stages of planning a bitShares Developers Conference to be held this summer in Las Vegas.  The conference would aim to bring together developers, entrepreneurs, and investors to create new DAC's.

The content would feature sessions taught by the founders of Invictus, industry leaders, and specialists in areas necessary to launch your own bitShares DAC. It would be three days, (one evening reception and two full days of content), and breakfast and lunch each day would be included.  The aim would be for attendees to come with their idea and leave with the tools, connections, and funding to make it a reality. 

So, my question to the forum is: What price point would a conference like this be worth? I know many of you have been to conferences from a $300 bitcoin conference (Miami) to a $2100 Microsoft Developers Conference.  Where on that spectrum would you think would offer a good value to price this event?

Between 600 / 1000 sounds fair to me being that it's 2.5/3 days including food. But it highly depends on the actual content as well of course.

We may also add an evening session after the first full day for a networking dinner, depending on how many speakers we have teaching.

Sounds good. What would be nice as well is to have a developer portal somewhere where people can find videos, tutorials, dev kits, forums etc for DAC developers. In most cases that would suffice so you talk about new things and advanced methods at the conference.

I have no reference for price point but I would pay for discussion time with members of I3 if you sold it as premium
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

I'm in for the $500-1000 range. I'm a Vegas local so I could potentially be a resource if needed.

I am from Australia and would like to make the conference. Under $1000 would be ideal. What is the approximate date?

Might be useful to make a chart of the previous conferences and their prices.

I will most likely be attending this conference.  It seems to be that a reasonable expected cost would be from $500-$1000, but I guess this all depends on the agenda and the value provided. Any idea on when we can find out more info?

We will be releasing a lot more info in the weeks ahead.  Brian is aiming to provide a lot more value than existing BTC conferences but we will probably price it in the $300 to $400 range so that we can get as many people as possible. 

We will let you know soon.

bytemaster,

I have a DAC idea that I've been working on that would fit well under the BitShares brand. It introduces some new concepts, including my attempt at a solution to a modular problem that can be applied to other DACs in this space. A demand for this product already exists in the mainstream and unlike other crypo coins who unfairly get criticized for facilitating black market trade, this DAC would actually help to eliminate black market activity from its field. I am not ready to publicly announce this project, but I would like to get the ball rolling before the conference which is months out. If this community doesn't build this project, someone else will. Oh yeah, and most importantly, I'm willing make PTS and AGS holders the majority shareholders.  Can I PM you and explain my idea in more detail?

Thanks,

Scott
