thank you for your comment.
I think it's not only people from latin america, but also in Europe
there are quite a number of developers that simply cannot pay
I called the Queens hotel and there first day rate was 107 euro,
and third day fees where 80 euros, to expensive if you ask me for
However I did found hotels for 40 (bahnhofstrasse) and 60(Acora)
I think can be a good alternative for the people. Thanks to somebody
on the #typo3 IRC channel.
Of course we cannot pay there hotels for them, However i think it
can be possible to
dramatically lower the fees of the event itself.
