QCon London 2012, taking place March 5-9, 2012 is now open for registration (£ 295 savings until Dec 16th). There is no other event in the UK with similar opportunities for learning, networking, and tracking innovation occurring in the Java, .NET, Html5, Mobile , Agile, and Architecture communities. Key takeaway points and the many blog discussions from last year's QCon London can be found in this article.

We are currently in the process of assembling the sessions and speakers for QCon London with an initial schedule to be posted late December. The tracks at QCon London 2012 include:
