Attending to events is an incredible opportunity for all developers to get a new perspective on the app development environment. The experience of sharing ideas with new people can be very enriching.
Conferences and events have a sense of community, which can be defined as a group of people who share similar interests and get together to talk about those topics that fascinate them the most.
Learn from the experience of other people is always a plus, a community can help you create a professional network and, maybe, find job opportunities.
Social media has definitely helped developers to create online communities, but sometimes it is more fulfilling to create events and meetings in order to share ideas and experiences together more personally.
Technology companies are aware of the importance of communities, and yearly they organize events where they present new products, providing developers a space to interact.
