QCon Events 2022: Uncover Emerging Trends & Learn From Practitioners Driving Innovation in Software


Each of us has different preferences in evolving our software development skills and knowledge. Depending on our schedules, we emphasize distinct aspects that help us understand new technologies, get answers to questions we are facing, or seek fresh perspectives to make decisions. 

That’s why QCon offers two international software development conference formats, in-person QCon San Francisco (Oct 24-28) and online QCon Plus (Nov 29-Dec 9). Level up on the skills most in demand in the industry by uncovering emerging software trends to solve your complex engineering challenges. QCon is the only software development conference that creates unique experiences to help you learn directly from people like you; senior software engineers, software architects, and team leaders.  

Leading software practitioners in the industry such as Tapabrata Pal, Vice President of Architecture @Fidelity, Vinod Sridharan, Principal Software Engineering Architect @Microsoft, Facundo Agriel, Software Engineer / Tech Lead @Dropbox, Aditi Gupta, Staff Security Software Engineer @Netflix, and many more are sharing their best practices at QCon San Francisco and at QCon Plus. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn something new, connect with a global community, and bring back implementable ideas to explore with your team.

Software architecture tracks not to miss

QCon San Francisco (Oct 24-28) and QCon Plus online (Nov 29-Dec 9) bring together world-class software architects from early adopter companies to share their experiences and insights on stage, and online. Some of the topics the conference will explore include:
