I love the variety of topics. It is my annual recap of the technology industry and helps me keep up with what the industry considers modern and state of the art. And mostly I like the fact that people are open about sharing both their successes and failures.

QCon charges a premium price point, but I can’t remember the last conference I attended (of 100s) where every single talk was interesting and I learned something. #qconlondon

Donnie Berkholz

Feeling the #QConLondon FOMO, even though I’m here. I’ve enjoyed every talk I’ve been to, but then I see the tweets from the concurrent talks I *wasn’t* in and start gnashing my teeth that I missed it. I guess that’s why recordings exist.

Brain: melted, thanks @qconlondon and all speakers for the amazing content. #QConLondon

On my way to #Qconlondon, looking forward to a real in-person conference after two years #softwaredeveloper #agile #travel #londoncity #InfoQ

Ben Linders

Due to QCon's focus on early stage technology trends and the curated expert speakers, the material presented was visionary, fresh, and applicable for things we need to solve in our teams. The conference was well-facilitated, and the daily format (keynote/intro in AM introducing tracks) was compelling also.
