Coldfusion Conference Pricing

I’ve seen a few comments about the cost of CFUNITED and the earlybird closing date. In the past, it’s not been something I’ve paid much attention to because I’ve always attended as a speaker and always gotten all my material in on time so TeraTech comps the fee and the hotel. If you don’t get your act together as a speaker, they still comp the conference but you pay for your hotel!
