My Thoughts on HostingCon
Alrighty, for everyone who has seen my WebHostingTalk worst of the hosting industry video know that I rambled a lot towards the end. This time, I got to the point and want to explain how HostingCon is actually a violation of our human rights.
My first contention would be that they are under no obligation to dictate what 'age' we must be to attend a conference or talk to other hosting providers. We should beable to learn about the web hosting industry at any age. Whether this would be attending conferences or talking to providers face to face.
My second contention would be they are contradicting themselves by allowing 'alcohol' to be used with the word education, that doesn't make sense and whenever there is alcohol / wine involved, makes it a NON-education learning environment. You can see this contradiction in their 2014 promo video here at 1:06.
And the third part starts at around 3:30 shows several red flags of their hostingcon full conference benefits chart.
With all this said please be cautious before spending that $700 . Hope this helps.
If the future of the webhosting industry is dictated by a corporate title tag.. we have a HUGE issue. Help make it stop by boycotting WebHostingTalk
