Growing a robust professional network and learning new and innovative technologies remain two vital parts to any successful tech career. Attending a few tech conferences each year provides a great opportunity to do both in one fell swoop. Consider presenting at a tech event for an extra boost to your career prospects.
Here are a few of the more interesting technology events scheduled this spring in the St. Louis region. Attending one or more of these conferences is simply good for your career growth. Speak with your boss about the company reimbursing you for any event fees.
