Why should you go to a Meetup?

Meetups

Meetups have become the standard go-to events, especially for the Tech industry over the last few years.  The relaxed, informal format of drinks, pizza, chat, and informative presentations is a format that suits many software developers and digital marketers and there is a huge range of subjects so whatever your passion - there's probably a Meetup for it somewhere

They're an excellent place for getting to know your peers, and they are generally extremely friendly and welcoming which isn't always the case at conference-style events.  Most people don't mind being approached and love the chance to talk about the Meetup subject further or anything you have in common that is more interesting (a conversation about a knitted Cthulhu springs to mind!)   They don't cost much if anything, and you get to hear from the people on the ground - doing what you do - rather than influential speakers who might not have got their hands dirty for a little while

Why should you go to conferences, summits or seminars?

Conferences

There is a multitude of big conferences throughout the year and some are occasionally even free to attend.  They're incredibly useful if you're looking for new suppliers who will top up your supply of pens, cups and sweets for the rest of the year.   The most important decider to attend a conference however should be what you can learn from your industry thought leaders at the various workshops and seminars on offer.  You can beat your competitors to the latest tips and tricks and gain the industry insight that you need to help your company and career further.  You might also get the chance to attend workshops where you can discuss typical industry issues with your peers.  Conferences are also a great chance to chat with the industry leading speakers and get to know them - many of whom are extremely happy to answer your questions during or after sessions (a bit of ego stroking can go a long way)

Why should you go to workshops?

Seminars

 

Smaller workshops and seminars are where you can often learn new skills, upgrade what you currently know and sometimes even put new skills into practice.  You can play around with code with the comfort of knowing that you won't break anything at work that matters and you're free from staging sites and the joy of restrictive change controls.  More importantly, you'll get the chance to ask relevant questions of industry leaders who can really help advance your knowledge

Why should you go to a Hackathon?

Hackathon

You'll spend quality time working with a team of interesting people solving real-life issues belonging sometimes to big-name tech companies or creating something for the greater social good.  You'll work with people who are as excited about this as you are, get the chance to win cool prizes, notoriety in your field and add a new t-shirt to your collection.  Hackathons can be great if you're not too experienced and want to add to your work portfolio.  If you're super skilled, they might be a great place to showcase your work to big sponsors - almost like a hands-on interview.  The best thing about Hackathons, however, has to be the sense of accomplishment by the end of the day - you've come in fresh to a problem, worked it through and solved it - what can be better than that?  They're hard work but truly exciting and whatever level you're at you're guaranteed to learn something new and have fun while you're doing it

Why should you go to a Tech Camp?

Are you kidding? It's a holiday! You get to hang out with people you've got loads in common with (hopefully), have a laugh, possibly get up to mayhem and make great friends with your peers.  It could be the start of new lifelong friendships, a great chance to immerse yourself further in your field or just have fun with some likeminded people

Camping

Start planning your 2019 events schedule now

Whether you want to learn new skills, network with your peers, find out about new trends from leading influencers or focus more intensely on your field of work, then you should definitely get out and about more.  Many software developers are happy working in their company silos, but you don't know what you don't know unless you get out in the wider world.  If you want to play a bigger part in your company's success it is vital that you learn what is happening in your market and implement any useful tips when you return.  Getting out and networking can be a great way of getting yourself known for what you do and it might just open up a new door to the job you've been waiting for.
