George Bernard Shaw captured the true essence, purpose, and importance of attending tech conferences.
He said, “ If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas”.
Ideas are like happiness. It grows only when you share it.
Sharing your ideas out loud with like-minded people or even better, presenting those ideas on forums in front of an audience brings in new perspectives.
Ideas, when presented and discussed, come out more refined than what they originally were presented as.
And what better platform than a tech conference to present and share your ideas!

However, attending a tech conference is not just always play; it is a solemn task and requires a great level of commitment.
