Attending conferences is a great way to stay up to date on what is happening in the industry, trending information, and more.
One of my favorite parts about attending conferences are the learning opportunities that also come with it. From pre-conference trainings to workshops, there are many ways to soak up the knowledge.
At our own Security Conference we have both pre-conference trainings for certifications, OWASP, and more, plus dedicated workshops that you can attend throughout the conference.
Share with us - what has been your most memorable learning opportunity that you have experienced at a conference?

Last year I did the OWASP, which was great, fun, and added a lot.
Previous years I've chose different items based on what I wanted more knowledge in.
I can say that I was pretty disappointed when I looked at the list of pre conference courses this year and saw the same as last year, which gives me a feeling that there won't be much diversity in what is going to be open to choose in the coming years, and this part of the conference has for me, been a great tool.
I'm hoping that coming years will show a diversity that was available when the conference was a joint one.
The CCSP boot camp training in 2018 was awesome!
