Pay What You Can Afford

Same as a Gold Pass. Rather than having a scholarship program we are again offering a pay-what-you-can-afford option this year.  Your registration fee supports the 40+ speakers and conference organizers who work hard to make this conference a reality (everyone who works on this conference gets paid), so we understand if you can’t afford the full registration fee, and we ask that you pay what you can afford so that we can keep the conference going strong. Thank you!

Please note, we do not offer refunds. You may transfer your registration to another person. To do so, just e-mail and let her know the e-mail you registered with, and the name and e-mail of the person to whom you are transferring your registration.
