Are conference attendees getting older on average? A fellow attendee made the observation at DerbyCon. ShmooCon is probably combating this with their Shmooze-A-Student program as well as their guarantee of tickets for West Point. But what about the others?
The theory given was that DerbyCon and ShmooCon are hard to attend. Tickets sell out extremely quickly. The tickets are more likely going to people who have already attended and want to return.
Anyone else observe this or have any thoughts?
