Conference & Event Index

I attend a large number of conferences and industry events every year. I always take notes and frequently publish summaries of the sessions. Summaries are typically broken up to multiple posts with links below each event on this page. If you would like to know more about a particular event or if there is an event for which I haven’t posted my notes (marked with ‘*’), please ask.
