A List of Canceled, Rescheduled, and New Virtual Events in the Wake of COVID-19

April 1, 2020

The world during COVID-19 is fluid, with things changing constantly, and businesses are having to adapt quickly. It’s impacting everything in our day to day life, from how and where we work to who we work with (like our newest colleagues – partners, kids and pets). It’s also affecting many of the in-person tech events that were scheduled this spring, where you planned to network, learn, workshop and try new technologies. We wanted to share the latest on some of the events that are going virtual, being rescheduled or canceled. We’ll also share some of the new relevant events popping up in the virtual space.
