One of the big things I enjoy about Connect IT is having the opportunity to sit at a table multiple times and talk to somebody who does exactly what I do.Micah Thor, COOTech Guru
Essentially it pays for itself in the first four hours, as soon as you start talking to some of your colleagues and various cohorts who are dealing with the same struggles you are going through, asking them how they approach the problem – and then having that light bulb moment of “Oh I can do it that way”.Brian Dagan, Sr Solutions EngineerConnected Workplace Solutions
