If you have any interest in Python (the programming language, not snakes), you should try a PyCon. It's inexpensive, held in normal cities, and attended by normal people in casual dress who love creating and using technology. Plus, you actually learn useful things with minimal marketing distractions.

I attend a lot of slick conferences, but I NEVER miss a Pycon!

There's no PyCon where I live. Heck, there's hardly any conferences here worth bothering with ;)

Sorry. I sometimes feel similarly about San Francisco - I think people there could attend conventions every single day of the year.

PyCons are held in Australia, Singapore, and Taiwan, though, so you're surrounded if you have means to travel a bit.

And if not, it's a community conference - you could always just organize PyCon Philippines yourself if you're interested enough. Wish I lived a little closer - I'd love to help, but it's a fair swim from Texas. ;-)
