The conference is around $2000 for 3+ days.
The $200 is an add-on for a training day.
Add your cost for flight and hotel.
if you are beginner, you can learn what FileMaker can do and also meet a lot of people who can teach you how to use it. I have seen in past people coming to learn about FileMaker's capabilities without knowing much about it before. You can learn a lot!
(not sure if this is worth for your budget)
Thanks Christian! That helps things make more sense!
Now I just have to weight the ROI, but for me I think I really need to go immerse myself into it to decide if it's the right path for me or not.

DEVCON is very valuable to attend. However, if you do not attend this year I suggest that you attend next year and register early for a sizable discount on registration. There is the Filemaker Training Series that is available, the Basic version is free and would be a great help to learning. FileMaker Training Series: Basics
One mistake I made was not taking the Filemaker Training Series when it was first released. Take the Basic series and then if you are going to stick with Filemaker, take the "Advanced". You are already on this list where folks post a variety of questions and most receive answers in a short period.
Thanks Mike! I'm looking at flights and hotels now. Wish I had heard about the conference earlier to get in on the early bird. $2100 for the event is a lot to swallow for 3 days
So I have decided to attend. Thank you guys for your insight.
I'll be getting in Sunday Mid-afternoon so if there anyone is interested in doing Dinner on Sunday night, I would love to get together and talk some Filemaker for Newbies and share my project ideas to get some insight from you etc.
