Don't Go to Conferences

by Željko Filipin

I have been to a lot of conferences. I have been a speaker at some of them. I have even helped organize a few. I like going to conferences. I also think that going to the most of the conferences is a waste of time.

I have been thinking about conferences a lot lately. I was leading a session at a recent Testival conference about not going to conferences. I also gave a lightning talk about it at a recent Testival meetup. While writing this post, I did some research. I was surprised how many was already written on the topic. For now, this post is a collection of my rough notes. I will revisit it from time to time, as I get feedback.

Why people go to conferences?

Why you shouldn’t go to conferences?


If you go to a conferences, how to get the most of it?
