Conferences are some of the most exhilarating and most exhausting times for me.
On the one hand I'm usually hungover from the night before. On the other hand I'm still hoping to get my laptop back form Apple so I can review code with people who actually know what they're doing but on the other han just watching is just as good, if not better: you can see where people fail and how you can leverage that on your own code and teaching.
These 1-day conferences are so intensive and so content-dense that they drain you even more.
The content is amazing and the after party was even better 😀
