Software is Changing the World. QCon empowers software development by facilitating the spread of knowledge and innovation in the developer community. A practitioner-driven conference, QCon is designed for technical team leads, architects, engineering directors, and project managers who influence innovation in their teams.
QCon highlights the most important development topics driving innovation - things you should be doing now or researching for your next project - presented by the doers in our community. Our conferences bring practitioners together with attendees who influence innovation in their teams: over half of conferences attendees, for example, have team lead or higher job titles. Additionally, QCons are staged in an intimate environment that promotes high-quality learning, peer-sharing, fun, and inspiration!
QCon starts with the 3-day conference from Monday thru Wednesday, followed by 2 days of of tutorials on Thursday and Friday.
