Web Hosting Show and Conference News
(Page 1 of 4 )
Looking for more ways to learn something new about web hosting? Or are you finding yourself struggling to keep up with the field? Articles and forums are great sources of information, but you might want to add a couple of different kinds of sources. Keep reading to learn about two conferences and two audio shows that will help supplement your web hosting knowledge.
You know that a field has matured when you start to see conferences devoted to its practitioners, and web hosting is certainly no exception. Conferences are an excellent way to pick up news in the field, check out what vendors (including the competition) have to offer in terms of new technologies or services, and attend workshops and presentations to gain valuable knowledge that you can put to work for you when you get back. And of course, the networking opportunities are priceless; many people attending conferences have found new jobs, new employees, or at least lucrative freelance projects.
As a writer myself, I’m well aware that many people further their web hosting education by reading articles and participating in online forums. Some wise web hosts take advantage of the opportunity to learn from hands-on experience gained by working for another web host before starting their own company. Attending a conference, however, often helps to round out your education; it gives you a larger context. And there is much to be said for looking outside your usual sources of information from time to time!
With that in mind, I’ll be talking about two conferences focused on web hosting, one that just ended, one coming up this July. Also, in the interest of telling you about possibly less obvious sources of information, I’ll mention two other “shows” devoted to web hosting: one is a relatively new radio show that you can expect will deal at least peripherally with web hosting, while the other is a podcast explicitly focused on web hosting that has been around for at least a year. So grab a pen and start taking notes; you might even find yourself thinking about making travel plans, tuning your radio, or turning on your computer speakers to check out some podcasts!
