So I'm facing a little bit of a tough decision, I've wanted to go to the Google IO conference ever since I started in this industry and with a track record why would I not! The spectacular Google glass display, Android device releases and lets not forget the goodie bag! I had thought this would be the year to do it! So I've booked time off and prepared my calendar without ever realising how much it's going to cost me. I was pretty much aware of the cost of the ticket (around $900) but had completely neglected to think about flights and accommodation! So all in all its actually going to cost me around £1500 for a 3 day conference! Which begs the question is it really worth it? I could go on holiday for that much!
