Upcoming Events in Q2/Q3

With most travel for 2020 being scuttled, there has been a huge influx of online events….which is good and bad. I love that we are still connecting and sharing, and I’m grateful for these opportunities to share my knowledge and talk about some really cool and practical technology, but sad that I won’t be seeing people face-to-face for some time. No matter how advanced the technology and fast the interwebs, there is no replacing human interaction.

Over the next couple months, in addition to my monthly tweetjams and user group hosting activities, I’ll be participating as a speaker in several major online events, and thought I’d share details here. All of these are free to attend unless otherwise posted, so please sign up for whatever fits your schedule:
