In any field of endeavour, it is vital to stay connected with contemporary practice, and it is fun to see what is happening at the cutting edge.  Continuing development of skills and expertise, and exposure to different styles and philosophies, are aided by attending conferences and networking events.  For beginners and for those seeking certification or more formal evidence of achievement, professional training and development is another valued path.
