I'm looking to gather a list of NY technology and education conferences. Do you know if there is a master list? If not, can you help me build a list? Please post your favorite New York educational/technology conferences and your reason for attending. Thanks for your help.
Here are a few I might suggest...
ASSET - usually in March
NYSCATE - Usually in November (they also have a metro conference and leadership summit)
Long Island Technology Summit - Oct 28
Email me directly if you need additional help.
I extracted some of the NY conferences from his list below and added some of my own favorites. :)
