I'm doing a web game startup with one other person. We support ourselves with contract programming. I'm considering attending GDC for the first time, but we're really tight on cash. Money spent on passes and plane tickets slows our startup's growth.
Some say GDC is a good way to meet clients, but fortunately we have plenty of client interest, so I don't consider that a major concern. Still, it's generally good to network, and it's healthy for us as designers and developers to learn from the rest of the community.
Which type of pass should we invest in?
