QCon is a conference that is organized by the community, for the community. As software developers and architects ourselves, we wanted to craft the ultimate conference that we would find outstanding, as attendees. The result is a high quality conference experience where a tremendous amount of attention and investment has gone into having the best content on the most important topics presented by the leaders in our community, staged in an intimate environment with the best food and comforts needed to support as much learning and networking as possible.
QCon is designed with the technical depth and enterprise focus of interest to technical team leads, architects, and project managers. Some of the speakers include Martin Fowler, Amazon.com CTO Werner Vogels, Spring creator Rod Johnson, Hibernate creator Gavin King, Scrum co-founder Jeff Sutherland, LINQ inventor Erik Meijer and many more. The tracks at QCon were chosen to reflect both the hard hitting problems facing enterprise software today as well as the cutting edge that will become mainstream tomorrow, see the tracks listing elsewhere in this brochure.
