The Ruby folks in Texas know how to please a soft-heart like me:
This is a non-profit conference. The organizers are not paid and any profits will be used
for future conferences.
Also, the financial books are open and we will be publishing payables and receivables.
The purpose of this is to help other conference planners and to assure attendees that their money is well spent.
Very impressive, and great. Messrs Jim Freeze and David Bluestein II and Damon Clinkscales – big up from the Oresund Ruby massive.
Also: The format of a “pre-conference conference”, where the attendance fee is a donation to a charity, is a neat pattern that more and more conferences follow.
