Is It Worth To Attend Event Like DevCon Summit?

In every expertise, their’s always a group of volunteers who are willing to share their ideas as a give back without expecting any return. On my side, there’s a community called Devcon.

One day, when I was scrolling in social media I found the ads about DevCon Summit event near in our hometown. It’s really interesting but there’s always doubt back on my mind, Is it really worth to attend? I mean, this is a 1-day whole event. am I willing to exchange my 1-day workload for this summit?  Even my friend also asks me that question so here’s the breakdown of the pros and cons of attending an event like DevCon.
