I’m going to tell you about a conference I attended in June — why it was so awesome and how you can make the most out of upcoming conferences.
The NCTech4Good Conference was one of the best conferences, if not the best, I’ve ever attended. First, let’s get some logistics out of the way.
The NCTech4Good Conference is organized annually by NCTech4Good.
NC stands for North Carolina, where the group is based.
NCTech4Good is part of NetSquared and NTEN, organizations that bring together nonprofit technologists locally to share best practices and support each other's work. NCTech4Good also holds monthly meetups in North Carolina.
