Technology remains a burgeoning industry in the United States, with millions of people currently employed in the sector across the country.
Around eight percent of the workforce in the US earn a living from the tech industry which is worth around one tenth of the country’s total economy.
Studies have shown that California ranks first for net tech employment and is considered the most innovative region in the US.
With that in mind, it comes as no surprise that the Golden State regularly hosts some superb technology conventions. Read on as we take a closer look at two of our favourites.
