I have been attending a number of virtual conferences over the last few months and I’ve come to the conclusion that I miss in person conferences. From Kubecon to re:Invent, I miss the interaction with other people in the field. Talking at birds of a feather sessions help to understand where the industry is moving and help solve common problems we all face.
Not to mention the fact that I miss going to Las Vegas for re:Invent. I don’t gamble but I do enjoy all the lights, buzz, and activity around the conference. Plus it’s my one time each year that I replenish my t-shirt supply. The old t-shirts are not forgotten, however, they end up and Goodwill or are donated to the local shelter.
Please, people, wear a mask and social distance so I can get back to Las Vegas.
