Ahh, the sweet smell of summer is in the air. As the weather feels warmer and the days get longer, we’re ready to sit back and relax. But wait, not so fast. While the summer months are indeed ideal for catching up on some R&R, don’t forget to keep your skills sharp. Attending spring and summer tech conferences is a great way to break up the monotony of the office and stay current on industry trends.
Here’s what tech conferences we’re looking out for in the coming months:

GopherCon, by Gopher Academy, debuted in 2014 and was an instant success! It drew a sellout crowd of 700 attendees and has more than doubled in size since then. With exceptional pre-conference workshops taught by a few of the smartest people we know, some of the very best programming driven by our conference attendees’ feedback, and hours and hours of networking, we can’t think of a single reason to miss celebrating GopherCon’s five-year anniversary with us! So don’t wait until the last minute to buy your tickets; we’d hate for you to be sad.
When: August 29-31
