As HPC'ers how do you stay in touch with trends in the community? Develop professionally?

I’m curious to know what mechanisms you use for professional development as HPC’ers. Which conferences are especially useful? Do you belong to a professional society that is helpful in your career (ACM, IEEE Computer, etc), either from the point of view of staying current on technology or achieving career goals? To date I’ve mostly relied on personal connections, SCxy, and HPCwire (and insideHPC of course!), but I wonder what other folks are doing that is working for them.

If you’d like to respond, and I hope you do, leave a comment or send me an email.
