Below are a few of the best tech conferences to consider attending in 2019.

Held in Washington, DC February 4 and 5, Microsoft Ignite takes a cloud focus. As one of the tech trends to keep watching, this tech conference helps you learn more about the newest developer tools and how your skills can align with the technologies.
