<p>

On top of that, the name sounded nice, isn't it ?
</p>
<p>It started because some of us are lucky enough to attend marvelous conventions, made with love by amazing people. Great events with top-notch speakers, incredible venues, and amazing parties.</p>
<p>These conferences are run with huge contributions from volunteers, and financial support from sponsors, providing top-notch events at affordable prices.</p>
<p>But even then, they're not affordable for everyone.</p>
<p>We're building an alternative model: SquatConf.</p>
<p>SquatConf won't be your everyday conference, but we'll have good talks from amazing people. It'll be donation-based, and you'll get to contribute if you want to.</p>

<h2 id="how-is-this-possible-">How is this possible?</h2>
<p>Conference costs are huge, and ticket prices are often <a href="http://2014.lxjs.org/about/">nowhere near the true per-attendee cost</a>, even for a non-profit conference.</p>
<p>Fancy venues, transportation, hotels and food are really nice perks to have, but…</p>
<p>If you hold a conference in a squat…
the speakers advance their travel expenses…
tell people to bring some food…
and the wifi will be dodgy for sure…</p>

<p>You'll have a zero-cost conference made with love, but a little rougher around the edges.</p>
