  • Very good content and a wide variety of tracks. The tracks were very relevant to today’s tech and the future. It’s very inspiring to raise the bar in my current company. 90% of the talks I attended I really enjoyed and learned something.

    - Craig Saunders
    Agile Lead @KindredGroup
  • QCon is great. The best speakers in the world. It has more diversity in terms of topics than other conferences I've attended. It's one of those events that both makes your brain tingle because it is learning so much and makes you happy on a deep level.

    - Pontus Strand

    - Adam Robertson
    Senior Developer @AptecoLtd
  • QCon is a great conference with great content on a broad spectrum of topics. What's going on in our market, in our profession? What is at the rise? What will be the next thing appearing? What should be the next thing we should be looking for in our own company? What should be the next thing to learn? Great content. Many sessions. Good speakers. Fun talks. Hard to choose which sessions to attend. Great food for the brains. Awesome food for the body. On a hot spot in London :-)
