Autumn is arguably the best season of all. It’s a colorful time filled with joyful things like pumpkin-flavoured beverages, festivals, Halloween and the (in)famous Movember. But the most fruitful thing about this period is that it is known as the “back to school” season.
Even if you’re not a student anymore, this vibe can help you get back in the lifelong learning spirit. You know the benefits of investing in yourself, you just need an idea and a little motivation. On this note, we thought of sharing with you a shortlist of tech events that will take place in the near future.
