QCon New York 2020 Registrations Open & Top Videos from QCon NY 2019


QCon New York, the practitioner-focused software conference that attracts attendees from all over the world, returns to the Marriott Marquis, June 15-19, 2020, for the 9th year. QCon is organized by the people behind InfoQ, and is dedicated to providing a platform for technical leaders and engineers to learn about, engage with, and explore key lessons from building and delivering modern software systems.

The QCon conference series enables software leaders to share their story within the global epicenters of software development, such as Beijing, London, San Francisco, Munich, Sao Paulo, Shanghai, and New York.

At QCon, the focus is on sharing talks from organizations and teams that are driving innovation and change in global software development. All of the talks focus on patterns and practices, not products and pitches, and include implementable ideas you can take back to your teams. Software professionals attend QCon to discover new ideas, insights, and solutions to solve their software challenges. QCon believes in:

  • Practitioners first: QCon features engineers over evangelists, practitioners over trainers/coaches, team leads over consultants.
  • Talks, Open Spaces, AMAs, and Panels: Each attendee learns in different ways, and so we create sessions that support the asking of advanced questions, and help increase inclusion and also tap the audience's knowledge base.
  • Low attendee to speaker ratio: At approximately 11 to 1, QCon gives you the best access to discuss key topics with your peers and other top engineering minds.
  • Longer breaks: Connections are often made in the hallway track. As technical leaders and engineers, we know this and we create opportunities for you to do so.
  • No hidden marketing: All content at QCon is clearly indicated and separated between sponsored and non-sponsored talks (85% of the talks are curated and not sponsored). You'll never get a marketing pitch from a customer during a keynote.

The QCon difference

QCon intentionally curates the entire conference UX, and previous attendees have provided great feedback on the experience:

I enjoyed hearing real stories from practitioners pushing the envelope in software where we get to hear messy details that go beyond happy path considerations.
- Ryan Kitchens (Speaker)
