QCon London 2020: Kubernetes, FinTech, Streaming, ML, JavaScript, Performance, Cloud, Security, AI


Are you ready to uncover emerging trends, techniques, and tools in software development that will help you grow your career, build your network, and lead your team in 2020? Be part of QCon London, March 2-6, 2020, and join over 1,600 software leaders and their teams.

At QCon London you will meet peers from Apple, Udemy, Tessella, BBC, ING Bank, Spotify, Accenture, UBS, Orange, Ericsson, Webstep, Deutsche Telekom and VMware. You will also learn from expert practitioners working on a range of innovative projects, as they share their use cases, experiences, and recommendations to help you scale your projects and teams.

QCon is designed to help you meet with peers, share common challenges, and find solutions from the global software developer community. Join one of the technical sessions, participate in an informal "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) with speakers, or raise the topics you'd like to discuss in an Open Space session.

I think that after QCon I have a clear vision for at least 2 years about what is happening in IT. The vision includes technical aspects and human ones; some talks challenged even my convictions. I met my superstars ( I never thought I would be seeing Martin Thompson in reality, I was so excited to see Jessie Frazelle)
