Facilitated Peer Sharing, great food, and more

QCon has been experimenting every year with ways to introduce more peer-sharing into the event, since attendees are all technical leaders who can provide a lot of value to each other. Here are some of the things we're doing this year:

  • 2 hour open spaces unconference on Wednesday end of day; and thursday: one per track, staggered during the day. We're trying a 2 hour open space, one per track, from 5-7pm on Wednesday, immediately following the short talks. Then on Thursday we continue the schedule established at past QCon's where each track has a one hour open space during the day
  • Discussion Cafe - topical tables at lunch. Lunch will feature sections of smaller tables for 4 around particular topics where you can meet each other in a more comfortable setting, in addition to the usual large 10 seat conference lunch tables.

We hope you can join us for QCon New York 2015. Register before April 18th and save $400.
