QCon San Francisco Nov 18-20 Tracks and Conference Announced
The tracks for the third annual QCon San Francisco (Nov 18-20) have been published and QCon is now open for early registration. Last year's QCon SF survived the downturn in November with over 450 attendees, this year we have reduced the price and are offering special early registration with savings of $800 until June 17th.
Our vision with QCon is to create the ultimate conference for team leads, architects, and technical project management and we have tried to do that by bringing together a diverse range of topics and speakers covering both timely/practical topics that will help your projects right now, and also sessions that will provide you with tacit knowledge: context and perspective that will help you be a better software craftsman. The following are the tracks for htis next QConSF :
