Two Birds With One Tech Event - The Genius Idea That Is Pre-Con Training

Why didn’t we think of it sooner?

IT events have become nothing short of a full Broadway-caliber production. From the over-the-top venues to the indulgent cuisine and live entertainment, tech conferences, aside from the obvious benefits of networking, have established themselves as a juggernaut with countless other flashy perks.

In an effort to avoid diminshing the undeniable value of IT conferences, the contacts made and conversations had at these events can change the trajectory of an organization’s year in a matter of hours. That’s why more and more IT professionals attend year after year. But for the cost of travel, hotel, precious time away from the office, and other trip-associated expenses, shouldn’t there be some other tangible advantage attendees leave with?

That’s where pre-conference training comes in. By getting DevOps Institute certified at an IT event they’re already attending, learners are applying the information they’ve digested in class to real-life exchanges just a day or so afterwards at the conference- and then doing the same for weeks, months, and years to come back in the office.

DevOps Institute is proud to partner with major IT events around the world to bring pre-conference training and other educational opportunities, delivered by DevOps Institute Registered Education Partners, directly to continuous learners. Check out the list of upcoming events- and make sure that the next time you attend a tech conference, the juice is worth the squeeze:
