It’s been a few weeks, but I want to (finally) share and record some of the things I learned, some of the things I missed, and the general feelings from this year’s event!
First and foremost: I am so grateful that it was back, in-person again this year. I have attended quite a few of the virtual and “hybrid” conferences and I can’t say that any have really offered a better experience than in-person. Sure, it’s easier to sit in your chair, you can avoid the panic of a flight, and you get to stay where you’re comfortable; however, the positives – not worth getting into here – far outweigh the benefit of being able to focus. Perhaps that is a fun think-through for later.
