We strive to keep dotConferences accessible to everyone, regardless of their background or resources. Fortunately, we have lots of help to do that. Our partners help us keep the conference affordable. Our ambassadors help us reach a wider audience in exchange for a free ticket.
We are now introducing a new way for all our audience to help: Fellow tickets.
The idea is simple: if you'd like to help, you can buy 2 tickets at once: one for you and one for a Fellow that will be invited to the conference.
Fellows will be chosen by partner organizations that promote diversity and broaden education for developers.
We will give them a shout out during the conference and thank their sponsors!
