QCon Plus 2022: Join Us Virtually for Quality Content and Connections

QCon Plus, the online software development conference organized by InfoQ, is returning this November 29-December 9, with an international community of senior software engineers, architects, and team leaders joining. Don’t miss your chance to be part of this event!

QCon Plus will help you make the right decisions by uncovering how senior software developers at early adopter companies are adopting emerging trends. Learn about the topics and trends, curated by our Program Committee, that they believe have the biggest impact on the software development industry in the coming year, and get the assurance you're adopting the right practices so you make the right decisions.

Software architecture tracks not to miss

QCon Plus features independent, unbiased content, and technologies that help software engineers, tech leads, and architects drive innovation in the software industry. Over 110+ real-world practitioners will share actionable takeaways, trends, techniques, and best practices of working. The conference will explore 15 major software topics, including:

  • Operating Microservices: Patterns for Success: Microservices solve numerous problems around cognitive load, velocity, isolation, and scalability - if you get them right! In this track, Wes Reisz, technical principal @thoughtworks & creator/co-host of #TheInfoQPodcast, previously platform architect @VMware, will share practical advice around what good really looks like with system observability, patterns of integrating with legacy codebases, situations when microservices were NOT the right answer, and the most common issues encountered when it comes to day 2 operations with microservices. 
  • Architectures You've Always Wondered About: How do the internet-scale tech giants deliver exceptional user experiences while supporting millions of users and billions of operations? In this track, Randy Shoup, consulting CTO (former eBay, Google, Stitch Fix), you will explore what it takes to operate at a massive scale from some of the best-known names in our industry. 
  • "Before & After": Hybrid Work Strategies: Many of us dreamt about escaping the daily commute, working remotely or flexibly, however, we didn’t realize that this ideal would become a reality so quickly. James Stanier, director of engineering @Shopify, will explore the great opportunities and challenges that remote work brings to companies and the industry. He will deep-dive into the tools and strategies that we’ll need to embrace as we shape the future together, and share actionable tools and techniques for teams and companies to make your work better, wherever you are.
  • Modern APIs: Building and Evolving: A modern cloud operating model is API-driven, but what does that really look like? Should you use GraphQL or REST? Stick with JSON or is gRPC a better choice? When do you need a service mesh or an API gateway? How do you factor in the people who have to build, maintain, evolve, and consume your APIs? Thomas Betts, Laureate Application Architect @Blackbaud, will share real-world stories and advice regarding all the challenges and important decisions needed for a successful API strategy.
  • Practical Security: Modern application development velocity has drastically changed how organizations approach securing their software products. Julia Knecht, manager, Security Platforms Engineering @Netflix, will share real and innovative strategies for scaling security in large, fast-moving environments and will discuss scalable and practical approaches to: securing authentication & authorization architectures, cloud security, scaling privacy, and how this changing approach impacts the distribution of responsibility and the cost of security.
  • Explore all the topics.
