As part of my ongoing exploration of career growth and learning more about myself, I’ve decided to try and get out and learn more after work.
Frankly, it amazes me all of the talks and learning opportunities that are offered after 5pm in Toronto. Yesterday, I had the chance to attend DevTO, an organization for Toronto developers and people working with (or interested in) technology.
It was a free event, and they gave out food, so I didn’t even need to buy dinner. The net cost was only a few hours of my time, but the benefits were incredible. I got to listen to two talks from interesting people in the field of technology trends and open information, and I had the opportunity to meet a number of other fascinating people and enjoy some great conversations.
DevTO puts presentations up online as well, so you can learn even if you can’t make it to an event.
So, my first time time to DevTO was a success. I’ll definitely be going again. Do you attend any events after work where you live?
