The conciseness with which the event is presented, as well as the options for the tracks, allow one to either mix and match talks or focus on a single track of interest. It's an interesting and wonderful approach. The long breaks and 'unconference' opportunities are also quite unique in their ability to connect people from seemingly different backgrounds.

What has always stood out for me has been QCon's commitment to its brand promises. First of all, it's focused on practitioner content. QCon conferences are all about the people that develop and work with future technologies. This starts from the Programming Committee, which comprises practitioners that are authorities in their domain.

Engineering is about solving problems.. Sometimes we solve these problems by writing code 😀 .. Thank you @randyshoup for the beautiful training and energetic presentation and collaboration between the attendees. #QConSF #SoftwareEngineer #Coding
Classic #QConSF problem: too many cool topics. Loving it
2nd day of #QConSF was quite literally earth shattering. And not just because of the 5.1 magnitude earthquake nearby. Lots of ground breaking topics and discussions. What's in store for us on day 3 I wonder. 😅
I had an absolute blast at @QConSF, hands down the best speaker experience I’ve ever had! Major shout out to @InfoQ for being as thoughtful as they are in organizing the event. #QConSF
