Another year, another learning plan, another budget to be approved, another language to learn, another community to meet…
As we constantly strive to improve and learn more, we thought it was a good idea to put a list of cool events taking place in 2019, stuff you might be interested in if you’re a software developer, a change agent, a product leader, or a UX designer.
Are you ready? Fasten your seat belts:
It’s time for Avanscoperta’s 2019 Conferences and Events Guide!
Disclaimer – How to read this post:
This list includes mainly tech events but, as our community is getting bigger and more diversified, you might find something that can interest you and is not strictly tech-related.
How did we put together this list? These events are suitable for an international audience (e.g. talks are mainly, if not totally, in English), some have some of our trainers in the line-up, and we’re making sure all parts of the world are represented here.
Did we forget anything (we surely did… Lanyrd we miss you!)? Drop us a line: firstname.lastname@example.org.
