I was looking at the registration page for DevDays 2011 in Washington DC last week, and the registration price was listed at $399. Today it's $499. I'm surprised; did I miss an early-bird deadline or something? It seems early for the price to be increasing. Is there a registration deadline coming up that I should know about? I'm hoping my company will pay the registration fee for me to attend, but it's hard to convince my boss when the price suddenly leaps over what I originally told her.

@systempuntoout - Washington DC still shows $499 when I look at it: link . Are you sure you're not looking at a different venue? – Joshua Carmody Jun 30 '11 at 16:27

If you participate in meta and did NOT attend DevDays last time, use the discount code "meta" for $100 off.

Are you verifying meta participation from users who use that code? Because that would be awesome. – Shog9 Jun 22 '11 at 1:19
careful, you might find yourself volunteering for a rather thankless, mindless, and drab administrative job. – Joel Spolsky Jun 22 '11 at 2:20
Oooh cool. Thanks – Joshua Carmody Jun 22 '11 at 3:56
I do have a tendency to do that! – Shog9 Jun 22 '11 at 4:04
Thanks again for the discount code. I just registered for Washington DC and my boss did indeed agree to reimburse me for it. – Joshua Carmody Jun 24 '11 at 17:29

Yes, the price went up. If you attended the 2009 DevDays, you will receive an email with a code that will drop your price by $100, bringing it back to the previous level (at least for the DC venue; some of the other venues have gone up even further).

BTW, I have no standing to speak officially. The above is just my own observations on this matter. :-)

The $100 code is true for London too. – Jon Skeet Jun 21 '11 at 20:58
@Jon: What, you mean the code will bring the London venue to original price? ;-) – Chris Jester-Young Jun 22 '11 at 1:17
