Guidebook as conference introduction

At the RailsConf 2006 there was an event called Guidebook, a one day introduction into ruby and rails as a help for those who are totally new to the subject. The price for admission was a charitable contribution.

Maybe this could be a model for other events, but it is very similar to the tutorials which are offered at many conferences. And they bring in the money. So I don’t expect many events to do this “guidebook” introductory day for free. But even if you have to pay for this, it is an interesting concept.
