Qcon was InfoQ's second conference (the first QCon having occured March 07 in London) but the first in the US. The event was produced in partnership with the folks who produce the JAOO conference in Denmark. There were 400 badges printed at this first QCon in the US, with 70% of the attendees being US-based, and the majority with team lead, architect, and technology director roles. Over 78 speakers presented at QCon SF including keynotes by Kent Beck, James Noble, Martin Fowler & Richard Gabriel. Going forward, QCon will be an annual event in London every spring and also in San Francisco in the fall.

Our next QCon in London is coming up in a few months, to be announced soon.
