In the past, many of us looked forward to packing our bags and heading off to various conferences, where we connected with peers, learned about new trends, and got lots (and lots) of swag.
Well, things are quite different now as in-person conferences have been replaced with virtual conferences. And so, that brings us to the 2-part February poll question:
- Part 1: Which online conferences are you planning to attend (or hoping to attend)?
- Part 2: Has your opinion of virtual conferences changed over the past year?
For Part 1, here are some upcoming virtual conferences that may interest you:
- Linux Foundation Member Summit – March 9-11
- ODSC East – March 31-April 1
- Adobe Summit — April 13-15
- Internet of Things World – April 26-27
- Red Hat Summit - April 27–28 & June 15–16
- RSA Conference – May 17-20
- Futurist Conference – August 11-12
- Ai4 2021: Exploring Artificial Intelligence Across Industry – August 17-19
Note: Many conferences are, at the moment, planning on having in-person events later this year, including HPE Discover, Cisco Live, Sapphire Now, Infocomm, Collision 2021, Google Cloud Next ’21, and Open Source Summit North America. Details for these events, however, will be announced as we approach their start dates. Depending on where things stand with COVID-19, they may remain in-person, they may shift to a hybrid online/offline format, or they may go fully remote.
For Part 2, we would like to know if your views of online conferences have changed, now that you may have had the opportunity to attend some (hopefully including Devolutions Central Online!). Do you have a more positive opinion now? More negative? Are there some aspects that you like and some that you don’t? Please share your experiences and opinions.
