Top Boston Events to Attend Before the End of the Year

by Dmitry Dragilev

In this busy and hectic world we live it is virtually impossible to keep track of all the cool design conferences and events which happen around where you live and work every day. For this very reason we decided to put together a quick little list of conferences and events that entrepreneurs, marketers, hackers, designers, movers and shakers in Greater Boston Area should attend during December 2012. It’s tough to keep track of all these events during the holidays so we thought we’d put them all in one comprehensive list. We’ll try to do this every month for you guys! Without further ado here they are:
