You're way over your head now.  Average salary in Serbia is around
€150/month, and it's not about whether I am hesistant to pay that,
it's whether I'll be able to earn 250 for the flight, 200 for the
accomodation, 50 for registration and a couple hundred for beer, food
and other expenses while there.

Granted, I make a bit more than €150/month as a programmer, but I'd be
glad to take a couple of friends with me to GUADEC as well: they would
probably become much more interested in Gnome, but giving out 600
euros is not common for people I hang out with.
