Tracks Announced & Registrations off to a Fast Start: QCon New York 2017 (June 26 - 30, 2017) Update

QCon is great because they get expert practitioners to convey quite a bit of detail; it's not just about sharing stories. They avoid vendor pitches and they don't have a lot of the "usual" speakers that seem to spend more time at conferences than doing things. You might be inspired to try something new, or you might extract insights from experts in what you're already working on.
- Paul Mogren, QCon 2016
