    This was a great event. Networking was great! Seeing people from ISCs, WSIPC, and OSPI made the learning opportunities vast.

    WASWUG 2023 attendee

    I learned tons of skills that will help me in my day-to-day tasks, and I had so much fun doing so! It was great to be around those in my field to learn, but also to relax and hang out together. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at WASWUG!

    This was the best conference yet! The training was relevant, tons of break out options, and the presenters were excellent and knowledgeable.
