See what peers have to say on social media about #QConLondon

It is very up to date with current trends. All the speakers seem like they know what they are talking about, and the talk doesn't seem like a rehearsal.

Ricardo Lima
Manager, Software Development @Workday

Very strong presenters talking about interesting thought-provoking subjects - not just a sales pitch.

Richard Mawer
Head of IDS Development @GBGroup

Best conferences I've been to - stellar organization, tracks, speakers. Amazing opportunity to meet diverse groups and discuss our problems, ideas and share knowledge/culture.

Greg Houle
Application Security Developer @Shopify

QCon is great! So much knowledge we never knew of. I want to implement and practice whatever I learned right away.

Aniket Patel
Senior Software Engineer @Cimpress

QCon for me is high-quality speakers lined up with just the level of abstraction I like. I feel I get a higher return on spent time than other conferences.

Thomas Pronstad
Senior Software Engineer and Partner @CloudberriesAS

Why do I recommend QCon? Great speakers from great companies having real first-hand experience to share on very pregnant questions we face in our everyday jobs as builders, advisors, or decision-makers.

Stéphane Ramet
Lead Architect Back-Office @Carrefour
