Discussion on: Why haven't you gone to a development conference?

For larger conferences (BUILD, WordCamp US, ng-conf), I don't think the cost of the ticket and traveling to the conference is worth the value provided. Especially true if the conference provided recorded videos, which most major conferences to.

I tend to get more out of smaller local conferences (local WordCamp, DevOpsDays, etc.), as it is less costly to attend, doesn't require traveling/lodging costs, and smaller crowds for talks allow more interactivity.
