We should never stop learning. Of course, it’s good to stay on top of new things via articles and social networks, but is that enough? When you’re looking to hear about new ways and want to exchange thoughts with other experts of your industry, it’s good to visit a conference.
Many such conferences happen annually, and while some come and go, some others love it and attend every year. Going to such events is great fun and has a lot of professional value add as well. But what do you do if you simply have no time to travel somewhere just to attend a 2 or 3-day long conference? What if you’re rather introverted and don’t enjoy gatherings even though you’d love to hear the latest from the conference speakers?
“With The Best” online conferences for developers
You could join an online conference like the With The Best series, hosted by BeMyApp. It’s all online, and you not only save the cost of travel and hotel stays.”but also you’ll save a lot of time by joining online conferences. An online conference on the Internet also allows speakers from all over the world to connect with a broad remote audience via video.
The With The Best conferences have first been done in 2015. They have a strong focus on serving developers, from which many are used to consuming text and video information as part of their regular work day and corporate culture. The With The Best team describes their focus on, “bringing together worldwide peers, mentors, and experts with the same technical focus, to share knowledge, learn, and network — regardless of geographical boundaries”.
Despite the heavy marketing effort on making these visible for an audience of developers, I felt that this was interesting really to anyone who cares about the subjects, may it be personal or professional interest. If these bullets sound anywhere near interesting to you, you should check them out even if you’re no developer (yet).
