We see many development teams at our conferences. Visiting a conference as a team has quite a few benefits: you can inform each other of what you learned in the different tracks, you can discuss tools and best practices directly within the context of your team’s projects and last but not least, it’s a fun team building activity!
One hurdle is often budget: managers are wary of sending an entire team to an event. To ease that burden a bit, we’re doing a ‘Team Tuesday’. If you buy 4 tickets you get the 5th one for free. Hopefully that will help convince your boss to send all of you!
