Couple of thoughts:

1.)  I just attended DevCon and thought it very worthwhile

2.)  I am a regular attendee to COMMON and still think it is worthwhile

3.)  I have attended the Connection Conference and think it is also
worthwhile

4.)  It's been a long time but I'm assuming that the IBM tech conference is
also.....worthwhile.

I think it's a matter of perspective and that each conference can provide
you with something that the others cannot.  It's all a matter of what you
are interested in.  There are some nuances that can also come into play -
size, labs, session length, etc.  My advice is to look at the agenda's and
use your judgement as to what is important to you as an attendee.

I do know that I am now a fan of attending conferences at Las Vegas.....not
sure if it was the Tilted Kilt or Showgirls that did that.......  :-)

IMHO

I no longer agreed with the direction of the conference or the focus of
management.  It was not very amicable, and it would be unprofessional
for me to say more.
