For most of us working in technology is not just how we make a living, it’s also a passion. And one thing we all have in common is the necessity to keep up with new developments. Subject matter blogs and books are almost mandatory. Along with that are conferences which provide an opportunity to interact with other techie-geeks. We can also attend local meet-ups which provide the benefits of a conference without the travel and expense.
We’ll keep you up to date on local meet ups that look promising in the US and other parts of the world.
