In regular years, conferences were a great excuse for tech workers to leave the desk, visit a new city, socialise with peers and learn from industry experts. But 2020 is a special year. Now that everyone is #suddenlyremote, we still have new ways to learn and inspire with remote conferences. Yes, many conference organisers (thankfully!) decided to still hold their events instead of postponing them.

If you're not feeling very confident in this new remote world, many of these conferences are addressing the new situation. They will help you to keep focused and be productive while arming your with tips to stay on top of your job.
