This item in japanese

This May at QCon Plus over 1500 senior software engineers, architects, and team leads will discuss emerging software trends and practices, develop their technical and non-technical skills and get valuable insights they can take home to their team to implement right away. 

The conference is developed by a committee of domain experts who create a vision for the conference tracks, shape the agenda, and identify speakers that can share their insights and knowledge. Their goal is to help software engineers level-up on the software practices, patterns, and skills most in-demand in 2021. 

The QCon Plus committee members are:

  • Daniel Bryant, QCon Plus conference chair
  • Sarah Wells, principal engineer at FT (Financial Times)
  • Eder Ignatowicz, Java Champion, tech lead, and principal software engineer at RedHat
  • Susanne Kaiser, more than 15 years experience in software development & architecture, previously CTO at JustSocialApps
  • Tony Printezis, staff software engineer (JVM) at Twitter
  • Panos Astithas, software engineering manager at Google
  • Werner Schuster, InfoQ editor, Functional Programming at Wolfram

I'm super excited to be chairing the Program Committee for this year's QCon Plus event in May. We already have an amazing line up of expert practitioners, domain specialists, and technical leaders joining me on the PC. Over the next several weeks our sole mission is to curate the best possible version of the next edition of QCon Plus. It's a privilege to be part of such an awesome team of software professionals creating an online event for fellow professionals.

Daniel Bryant, QCon Plus conference chair.
