Eager conferences and meet-ups goer, I believe that every developer should nurture his/her passion as much as he/she can. Meet-ups and conferences are a great way of doing it, and books, tutorials, articles… these days we have so many resources available that a lifetime wouldn’t be enough in order to explore all of them!
So, here’s me to the rescue, I’ll share resources I find useful, those being events, books or anything in between.
I enjoy conferences a lot, it’s a great opportunity to open your mind and look at things from a completely different perspective. I especially enjoy the feeling of coming back home full of ideas and inspiration for my - current or - next projects!

Meet-up & Community
One of the advantages of being here in London is that there’s at least one meet-up I’d like to attend every other day!
In August 2017 I joined the Go London User Group organisers and we run the meetup on a monthly basis: it’s been a great experience so far, and it’s very interesting to see what goes on behind the scenes, and how much work is involved in organising just a single event!
Other meetup I often attend are:
- Scala Central
- London Scala User Group
- AWS User Group UK
- London Microservices User Group
- London Software Craftsmanship Community
Too many, I know. I’m not a regular reader of any specific blog, I just happen to see someone sharing a link and often finding it insightful… in which case I might want to share it here.
I often start reading multiple books simultaneously - I’m not proud of it, but sometimes I get over excited! - but I thought this would be worth sharing as well
