3 tech events you should not miss this week

by | Jun 21, 2016

There has been a flurry of activities since the beginning of the year 2016 and the second half of the year is looking even more activity-studded than the first. Figuring out the events worth devoting time and energy to can be a daunting task sometimes.

So here is a list of events happening this week that I think may be worth your time. Attending all of them might be a bit challenging, but not impossible as they are all happening with very little time between one another; as you will get to see.
