Workbench Con Recap
Community over Competition was a resounding theme this year for Workbench Con and really in my opinion the theme about the maker community. I’ve never been part of a community that is so willing to help each other without worrying about something in return. It’s not a perfect community, there is still a tad bit of drama here and there (On Instagram) but for the most part everyone at this conference was genuine and helpful.
There were a lot of great speakers as I mentioned in my previous post but while the speakers are great, the real nuggets come from hanging out in the hotel lobby bar over a drink and just picking the brain of those who have gone before you and have more experience.
If you’re thinking about attending next year and were on the fence this year, I would highly recommend and make the effort to do so.
