The Java Symposium is still way to expensive for anyone that isn't sponsered by some large company. I as a student, receive a whopping 400 dollars off the entrance price. Woohoo. That means entrance is only $1000. talk about incentives. I am a big fan of Rod Johnson, Interface21 (back in J2EE Des&Dev before it became Spring), Hibernate and would of course love to see/hear Rod in person. Unfortunately, I am only interning at IBM in germany at the moment and their motivation to drop $1000 + hotel + flight for me to fly over to LV for a few days is...shall we say...not of the utmost importance. Ive paid my way into the yearly LinuxWorld convention in NYC before but they only charge 1/4 of what the Java Symposium extorts. How can TSS justify $1000 entrance tickets for students???
