From what I hear NAB is the place to be this April. This will be my first time, from hearing about the hype and the amount of people going its going, it's going to be crazy (awesome).
I have been talking around and people have said to wait to purchase anything until I get to NAB. Do developers discount software / equipment? Also, We got invited to some after parties, Does Creative cow have one? Any suggestions where to go or who to meet up with.

Depends on what you're looking for. It's full of salesman so take it with a grain of salt, depending on what you're buying. If it wasn't for the private parties I would treat it as a used-car shopping experience. Alias had a cool party last year though. They brought laptops and showed the new features of 6.0. They probably had 8 or so workstations around the room and had an open bar, which makes you remember less but still feel like you're having a good time. :-P

I agree. Yes, they typically discount stuff. They being NAB companies in general, Alias probably does something too.

I had a good time at the Fuji party, the alias party and the Leitch party. Studio 54 is cool too.
