RavenDB Conference Status Update

time to read 2 min | 392 words

As you probably know, we have the RavenDB Conference coming up in a few weeks. This is the very first conference that we are doing, and to say that we are excited would be a major understatement. We are going to have speakers talk about RavenDB from all angles. From the development team (including yours truly) to the operation guys behind RavenHQ as well as customers and consultants that can share their real world experience about how to best utilize RavenDB.

The idea is to have an intimate gathering, and for the very first time, to actually have direct way to talk with all of our users, as well as share a lot of the stuff that happens behind the scenes. Not to mention, we crave feedback, and several key features of RavenDB were actually proposed by the community and then implemented by us.

I was reviewing the registration numbers for the conference and it looks like we have made a… miscalculation. The idea with the conference was to charge just enough to ensure a commitment to come, to avoid the plague of free conferences where many people sign up and most never come. We even offset things so you can pay 89$ for the conference and you get a 90$ coupon for RavenDB. On the side, since we are already there, we also setup an additional 3 days course for an in-depth look at RavenDB.

But we had a lot more demand for the conference and the course than we thought we would have. We currently have just 2 places open for the course, and about 15 – 20 places open for the conference.

Since the course is more expensive, that was a the kind of surprise that is actually kinda nice to have: “Wait, you mean that they are giving us more money than we thought they would…”

At any rate, I find myself in the strange situation of encouraging people to go and buy the cheaper product, simply because we are really going to have no more room for the course soon.

You can register here, I’m looking forward to seeing you all.
