Ok, so it’s not the last day to register for the WWPC but it is the last day to save about $400 and hit Houston for $1395. If you can manage a coach class flight and less than a 5 star hotel, you can make the whole thing happen for less than $2K.
If you’ve been to WWPC years ago and didn’t quite get it, it has changed, a lot. You need to go. I beg you.
Community conferences are great. Partner mindshare is great. But if you want to be great, you need to hang out with the best. Not the best down the street, not the best guy that just figured out one or two things, not the fastest sweepstakes entry guy on the block, not the unemployed guy who is always by the phone for a trade magazine quote, not the person that is barely an inch above you but markets himself as the next coming of Christ… I’m talking about the best in the world.
And if you want to be seen in the same light, and some day be a peer to the best in the world, you need to look a little bit higher than the crowd you stand in right now.
If you run, manage, operate, administer or in any way are interested in the world of IT business, you just might want to drop $2K to hang out at WWPC. And if you haven’t figured it out yet, this event is not about Microsoft, and I really can’t spell that out any clearer.
Comments are open for the angry riffraff with no ambition, paid competitive conference speakers, bloggers that would like you to look down and around and not up and really anyone who would like to explain why it’s a bad idea to go look around how successful businesses are built around someone that controls over 90% of our market. Go on, I dare you. Everyone else, consider this your Monday morning kick in the ass to do something great for yourself.
