What tech conference to attend in 2019?
May 26, 2019 12:43 PM   Subscribe

I'm trying to pick a technical/engineering conference or certification to attend for this year and am especially interested in tech project management. What conferences or certifications have you liked and found useful career wise?

My company is paying for one conference or certification for the year and I need to choose one for 2019.

I'm currently working as a software engineer and am starting to lead projects for work, so learning about technical project management would be especially useful to me.

Additional things I do at work that might be useful to learn about are:
- Software development
- Data engineering
- Project management
- Working with "big" data
- Cloud infrastructure and development
- Distributed systems

I already have access to Coursera and Udemy courses through work, so am looking for suggestions that are more formal than those.

Thanks for your help.

The Lead Developer is good (or at least the London one was) if you are interested. More people management than project management but good if you are leading teams

Strata is a good data conference - I just went in SF for the first time. MeMail me with any questions if that seems up your alley. They also run it in NYC and London.

Strangeloop is a cool one, though geared more toward developers than PMs.
