I will consider going to PAX Dev next year. This is actually going to be the first year that I attend PAX proper. (already have my tickets
) And since I'm already taking another vacation earlier in the summer, I'm going to have to make do with the main PAX event. I do hope that this inaugural PAX Dev does well. PAX has been much more open to smaller indie developers than most of the larger, more traditional industry trade shows. Having a dev-centric get together before PAX proper sounds like a good idea. Developers get to talk shop for a few days, and then unwind a little with the regular PAX crowd.
