Scotch on the Rocks pricing announced

Also going to be title Comparing Costs of conferences. If you haven't seen already the SOTR blog has announced the pricing for next years conference.

£199 + VAT - Early Bird (Available until February 29th 2008)£299 + VAT - Full Price

I only really started attending conferences in 2006 at CFDevCon and since then have been a big advocate of them for many reasons! With Scotch on the Rocks just announcing it's prices I'd thought I'd see how it measures up against the other European options.

I've broken down the prices into two simple bands, early bird and standard. I've also not included bundled prices which add the pre and post tracks as these fall out of the scope of the general conference and are basically specialised training sessions.

Just looking at the price in a plain format shows you what a good value SOTR is this year. Nearly half the price of its competition and a good speaker line up already. It looks like i'm heading back for some <cf_beer>
