Think about Devcon in a few years time, and then a few more years.
Some questions and add your own.
How many people would be there? Will Devcon always have a limit of XX thousand attendees? How hard or easy will it be for anyone to buy a ticket?
There are are many kinds of conferences / events and are there any features or values from them that you believe Devcon should strive/practice for (and adopt if possible)?
Here are some popular ones to start brainstorming with (alphabetically, some may be bad or not provide helpful ideas), and add your own:
- Apple WWDC
- Burning Man
- Chaos Computer Club
- Consumer Electronics Show
- DEF CON
- Google I/O
- Mobile World Congress
- South by Southwest
- Web Summit
Devcon will always have its own identity. But it is too young to stop striving for some dreams.
