When working in technology, it’s incredibly important to stay up to date with the latest developments and build new social networks. There are plenty of online communities to connect with, but it doesn’t mean that you should be stuck at home browsing the internet for the latest news and developments. In fact, one of the best ways to nurture new relationships and stay in-tune with the tech industry is to attend meetings and conferences.
If you approach these conferences with the right mindset, you’ll find that it’s much easier to digest all of the latest releases and industry developments, and you’ll also be able to connect with the people you meet online with in-person meetups.
