Conference trip - business or pleasure?

I'm a Canadian software developer. I'm going to a conference in the US next month, and I'm not sure what to say when they ask if the trip is for business or pleasure.

On the one hand, it's not a vacation - I'm going to the conference to improve my professional skills, and to network with other developers.
On the other hand, I'm paying my own way, and I won't be representing my employer at the conference. I won't actually be conducting any business on the trip.
What do you think? Or does it matter if I answer wrong?
