2019 Hosts and Tracks

What is a QCon track? Each "editorial" track (that's what we call the curated talks focused on developer lessons) is a collection of software topics curated by a domain expert in areas such as culture, data science, machine learning, front-end technologies, and architecture.

The QCon Impact

QCon is a conference which creates opportunities for any developer in the world to talk to talented programmers who use leading-edge technology in their projects and are ready to communicate their experience. QCon inspires!

This has been an awesome conference, after speaking with others I think it’s due to the super technical content, quality speakers, and lack of vendor talks #qconlondon so glad I could be here :)

Thank you @srinip for a fantastic write-up on my QCon NYC 2019 Talk on Domain-Driven Design and Event-driven architecture.


I would recommend it for the depth of focus on software engineering topics, and the transparency around sponsorship. It really feels like an event for the practitioner (not for commercial products).
