Social Media Week Austin

Social Media Week Austin, held in February earlier this year, is a three-day conference which promotes discussion and knowledge sharing among professionals in the fields of social media and digital marketing.

Hosted in downtown Austin, Texas, the attendees were mostly local, a group of professionals that skewed mostly young and female. And boy, were they passionate. As I watched people take thorough notes and spent time lined up outside the smaller rooms to get into a session they wanted, I knew this was my kind of conference.

DrupalRomCom

It was a deceptively warm and dry Monday in Portland on the first day of DrupalCon. It was the first DrupalCon Kristy had attended, and the event that would change her life, FOREVER. Walking toward the hotel bar to meet her co-workers, she catches a glimpse of a handsome young gentlemen drinking alone on a very large empty table. Kristy, persuading her team to mix and mingle, moves the team to the gentleman’s open table.

At Midcamp, it’s still about community.

As a non-technical person, attending Drupal events always feels a little daunting. You’d think I’d be used to this by now, given my history of organizing technical events. But there is still the ickyness of imposter syndrome, a small voice saying you don’t really belong among the nerds. What the heck am I doing here? Who am I gonna talk to? What’re we gonna talk about? Is there anything in the schedule for me?

At events like Midcamp, though, all of that changes when I open the conference doors.

ReactFest 2018

A few days ago I was fortunate enough to attend  ReactFest, a conference/festival organized by the React community in London. From an awesome and diverse speaker lineup to a well laid out venue, the end result made more than one happy attendee declare that it was the best conference they had ever been to.
