First time I hear about devcom in Germany, living in Germany. And I'm not delighted or surprised.
Its one of the wrong gateways of Germany-based "Start-Ups": It seems to be more a Monetization, Publishing and "Netzwerken" (networking) Event, than a Showcase what's Made in Germany and Europe inside Research, Application and Development for Gaming, Visual FX and Media. I could travel to nearly Start-Up Events and get "Netzwerken" and Monetization too. With local connections. More self-setters. And cheaper. Will it be a bio-shop, reseller or an IT company?
The next point is all about the price vs. value. Nice to see that students get a cheap card. But for typical hobbyists and developers it is set too high. Is it an Event for students or what is it? It restrains myself to get interested for this maybe good exhibition.
If the devcom wants a real chance to get attention from developers, sessions and papers should be made public after this event. It should represent it as an event for decision-makers, and not home-trailers or advertising surface for entertainment. In Germany and Europe, we could learn to get better if we decide to share our knowlegde free of boundings - within an appropriate framework.
