Any kind of event or conference is best attended for three reasons – to hone and grow your skill sets, make new contacts within the desired community, and to explore fresh business opportunities. Technology is no exception. These tech conferences let you learn new technologies, meet new people who may be dealing with similar challenges as you, find the technological solutions to these challenges, and more importantly, build networks.
