QCon Plus, the virtual software development conference by InfoQ, is less than a week away. There are only a few days left to take advantage of the limited early bird tickets. Register and secure your spot. 

Don’t miss the chance to learn from, and connect with, 54 world-class speakers. Hear their valuable insights and advice to help you focus on what matters most right now in software development. 

QCon Plus is an online experience, creating unique opportunities to:

  1. Find out how to build stronger systems that hold up to the pressures of production, and empower operators.
  2. Explore languages and libraries being used today to build modern cloud-native architectures.
  3. Learn how to use technologies that deliver a more impactful interaction between the user and client.
  4. Hear how software organizations are infusing concepts like “pure functions” and “immutability” into their architectures and design choices.
  5. Discover the “subtle arts of the tech lead”, including empathy, communication, and organization.
  6. Explore how attackers can take advantage of unplanned situations, and learn the unique ways companies have shifted and adapted their security to withstand the attacks.
  7. Find out hard-learned architectural lessons on scalability, reliability, throughput, and performance.
  8. Deep-dive into real distributed system architectures and examine the tradeoffs made between the number of moving parts and operability.
  9. Explore best practices and actionable steps for individuals, teams, and organizations to make remote work more effective.
  10.  Look at the boundary between hardware and software, and apply new tools and techniques to deal with all the latest trends in hardware with the goal of extracting maximum performance from your systems.

We’ve created a number of ways that you can personalize your experience to get the most out of QCon Plus:

  • Plan your schedule around a couple of hours a day, two to three days a week for three weeks.
  • Engage with a Slack cohort of attendees to share common challenges.
  • Connect in real-time with speakers and attendees in our hallway track.
  • Problem-solve in our Open Space sessions.
  • Catch up on all the QCon Plus talks you missed after the event; exclusive on-demand content will be available at that time.

In addition to 18 tracks, QCon Plus includes optional workshops. These allow you to deep-dive into the software topics that matter most to you. Choose from over 10 workshops and register for only $150. 

As software developers ourselves, we designed QCon Plus to be practical, actionable, and software-focused. This is not just another virtual conference; it's an online experience where senior software engineers, architects, and team leads connect, gather new ideas, and hear from software leaders who are constantly pushing the boundaries.
