Why attend QCon San Francisco?

Here are 7 reasons why previous attendees have joined the QCon conferences:

  • Problem-solving and getting answers to your software challenges from real-world technical talks. Share experiences and common challenges with peers and speakers to learn how they have solved similar issues.
  • Level-up your skills and empower your teams on the practices and trends that matter the most right now to focus their development.
  • Collaborative learning. Many attendees join as a team, which helps them with team bonding and sharing insights learned. Connect with colleagues you might not have seen for some time (or have not had the chance to meet yet). 
  • Maximize insights from the world’s most innovative senior software engineers across multiple domains. Divide and conquer the agenda to get the most value out of the conference.
  • Bring new ideas back to your organization validated by your peers to shape your software decisions, workflows, and roadmap. Share key takeaways, use cases, and best practices with the wider team over a ‘lunch and learn’ or in team sessions.
  • Foster a culture of learning, growth, and mastery. Inspire and excite passion around like-minded professionals. Get motivated by professionals focusing on development and solving complex software problems.

Curated learning set by senior software leaders

Behind every QCon is a Program Committee of senior software leaders who curate the essential topics you need to know about. Meet the QCon San Francisco 2022 Program Committee:

  • Karen Casella: director of engineering for Product Edge Systems @Netflix
  • Wes Reisz: technical principal @thoughtworks & creator/co-host of #TheInfoQPodcast, previously platform architect @VMware
  • Randy Shoup: engineering and chief architect @eBay
  • Katharina Probst: director of engineering @Google Cloud Platform
  • Josh Wills: software engineer @WeaveGrid
  • Justin Cormack: CTO @Docker

What has always stood out for me has been QCon's commitment to its brand promises. First of all, it's focused on practitioner content. QCon conferences are all about the people who develop and work with future technologies. This starts from the Programming Committee, which comprises practitioners that are authorities in their domain.” - Wes Reisz, QCon Plus chair, co-host of the InfoQ Podcast, & senior engineer @VMware

QCon San Francisco provides a fantastic opportunity to spend quality time learning from software leaders in order to help you adopt the right set of technologies and practices.
