Should I go?
If you are a teacher, educational administrator, software developer, educational materials developer, or an IT manager then you should go. If you are already using Moodle, then you can pick up ideas on how to use it more effectively as a teaching and research tool. If you are new to Moodle, then you can learn a lot from the hands-on workshops, and from talking to experienced users and suppliers of Moodle related services, such as hosting a Moodle site and creating e-learning materials.
