    Vivanista does not pay their speakers, but they will take your money.

    Sadly, you get what you pay for. Speakers should be paid, otherwise your presenters will have no impetus to make it hands-on and useful for you without also plugging themselves and services.

    If you’ve paid good money to go to a conference, a workshop should not be a pitch.
