Rick Talks On Tour: Are You Attending These Technology Events?


Technology, Events, Development & Testing...

The Eligo Technology team and I pride ourselves on our involvement in the technology communities and networks that evolve around each respective user base, building lasting relationships whilst continuing to gain an excellent understanding of their needs. As such, we’re always excited to be a part of the events that take place within these communities.

These events are organised by industry enthusiasts and are excellent places to network, meet, and celebrate technologies and languages.  I have been honoured to meet many of these people as well as present at many of these technology events in order to help prospective technology candidates get the best foothold in their respective markets.

As well as participating, we are also fortunate enough to be able to sponsor these technology events to ensure their continued presence and effect on the communities they represent.

If you haven’t been to any of these technology events (or others, ask me for recommendations), I strongly suggest going.

We’ll be at the following events over the next few months.
