Unfortunately not this year... Just switched companies, it is hard to convince a brand new employer to shell out the $$$ to sponsor me when I've only been here a few months! Next year though...

Well that was a good time. It was the first time I'd been and I have to say I enjoyed myself. Dennis Miller put on a show Wednesday night. Man that guy is funny. The majority of the crowd seemed to really be into him as well, which was nice to see. All-in-all it was a pretty good time.

never been there, none of my previous employers would have been happy to pay for the cost and I doubt my current one is either (especially since it seems they're planning to scrap the Java application we have and replace it with Progress within the next few years and maybe offshore the entire development effort to eastern Europe).

I agree. Here's the link:
