MicroConf Europe in 2019 was the second to last conference I attended before COVID-19 struck. This year MicroConf returned to Dubrovnik. And it’s an absolutely amazing location, plus the weather was great all three days.
The conference was not large in 2019 but it was even smaller now – and that’s a good thing. I really dislike big conferences so this was great. It was about 100 people which made it very “intimate”. It also made it a lot easier to talk to the same people a few times so that it wasn’t just a 5-minute conversation and then you never see that person again.
Having speakers mingle and chat with the attendees is also a great benefit of conferences like this. You get to ask some follow-up questions and have in-depth conversations.
I had some really good conversations and built relationships with a few people whom I hope to see again at the next conference. Which, for me, will be the London local in May 2022.
Hope to see you there!
