Random Things Heard at Chain Link 2019

Did you attend Chain Link 2019 in New Hampshire this year? Out of all the conferences I go to each year, Chain Link is hands down my favorite. If you’ve ever been to one, you know how much fun we have when we all get together!

A couple of years ago, I started taking notes of some of the silly, fun, or outlandish things I hear at the conference. My first list was a hit, so I’ve made it an annual tradition.
