    I would love to attend but the registration fee is too high for independent developers. (maybe, microsoft can do something for indie developers and make it financially easy for them in future)I will attend sessions/keynote on @ch9.

    Thanks.

    I tried in the first 10 minutes, Hoping to get the early bird price or $1600, But having to enter various deatial, questionaire, emergency contact, waited for Hotel page to load, By which time another 10 minutes had passed, and I was presented with $2065 price tag. Which is too expensive for myself as an Indie Developer, including flights from the UK. Obviously not fast enough to get in first 500.

    So I will have to sit it out and watch in on Channel 9, and get all envious about all those attendees getting hardware Goodies.

    My personal thoughts are that for indie developers, we provide a totally free way to watch *every* session online in < 24 hours. That's unheard of in our industry. The total cost is $0.

    If you are an indie developer, then I totally understand the importance of reducing costs. Traveling and airfare to an event can even cost as much as a pass to a conference like Build ($250/night for hotel, $400-1,200 on airfare depending on domestic vs international, food, etc).

    If I was an indie developer, I would:

    • Watch the live streams and ask questions during live Q&A
    • Watch all the sessions that are relevant to me
    • Attend FREE Microsoft training like our 1-2 day dev camps on Windows, Phone, Azure, Web - http://www.devcamps.ms/. The best thing about these camps is that they are so many that you may not have to incur any travel costs to attend.
