The Training 2016 Conference Backchannel: Curated Resources #trgconf

David Kelly

This post curates resources shared via the backchannel of the Training 2016 Conference and Expo being held February 15-17 in Orlando. There are many conferences I would love to be able to attend, but most people can only accommodate one or two each year. The backchannel is an excellent resource for learning from a conference or event, even if you are unable to attend in-person.
