This past weekend I attended my first iOS dev conference, Indie DevStock in Nashville, Tennessee. I had a great time and really came away with a lot of value. Not only were the speakers excellent, I was able to make some new connections and talk to a few developers I have been following for a while (and linked to several times.) I encourage all of you to try to get to conference or network with your fellow developers in your city. - @cdbeshore

PS: Indie DevStock was a first time conference. It was extremely well organized and had excellent sessions. The two day event was well attended, but not a huge conference where you get lost in the crowd. I would highly suggest attending if they have another one in 2017. Kudos to them for pulling off such a great conference.
