12 devs in a focus group may not be able to represent the entire dev community, but surely my 10's of readers do, right?  Well, maybe not, but still I'd like to know more about what value you get out of dev conferences.  I created a short survey at http://host.ultimatesurvey.com/Microsoft/Surveys/TakeSurvey.aspx?surveyid=1039, for those who are willing to share their opinions with me.  There also a few questions up there about programming languages in use, job roles, etc, which will help me as we go through the content creation process.  You don't want to know how many crazy debates we get into about which talks should highlight C# vs. C++ vs. VB.NET in their demo code ;)
