in reply to How often do you go to conferences?

Fairly regularly ... Frequently

What does that even mean?

I chose "Fairly regularly" as I can't fathom what frequently would mean in the context of conferences.

Once a year at the German Perl & Raku Workshop. Easy, as I am in the organising team. And once every other decade to YAPC/TPC.

Once a year at this Big Data & AI World, Cloud Cyber Security Expo Europe, Cloud Expo Europe and Data Centre World thingy.

And until a year ago, more than once a year to IT job fairs. That' frequent?

    Well, quite. Regularity != Frequency. Halley's comet hits perihelion regularly but I'm unlikely to live to see the next one.

    I've been to conferences which are held regularly but infrequently too (eg. every 4 years).

    I imagined "Frequently" would be similar to a "Frequent flyer", so certainly more than once per year, but I couldn't pin a more precise number to it.
