Ad hoc online webinars have been springing up like mushrooms after the rain. With most, if not all, offline events transitioning into online, there is hardly a chance to free up that summer events calendar. So by now, most of us have probably developed some form of webinar fatigue. Fret not, the key to managing your events schedule is by knowing which conferences and online events to commit you time.
After the success of our previous online events post, Smart IT has gathered a fresh line up of prolific online gatherings and meet-ups. Our goal is to highlight events that you may not have otherwise considered and give you a chance to reassess some of events you were planning to attend in favor of something more productive.
The July events list caters to a large enough audience—from associate to executive, from junior to senior experts. We have attempted to compile a healthy mix of industry-specific events and niche conferences for the keep software developers and business managers. Let’s see this month’s line-up!
Venue: All online

Brief: Okay, technically speaking, this one has already started (today), but since the majority of the conference days will take place in July, it falls under July events.
