“Some of the best things I've learned in my career have come from professional events or conferences that I've had in my field,” says Nicole Forsgren, panelist. “Knowing that there's such a great tech community here in Arizona where I don't have to fly across the country is great! And if we could do this once or twice a year, I would personally find this super valuable, and I hope some of you would as well.”
