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.

Attending QCon London is a great investment. I've got a lot of new ideas for our Generative AI tools that I want to try out.

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.

What an excellent first day at QCon 2024 in London! 🚀 The sessions and speakers not only met, but surpassed all expectations, leaving me feeling incredibly inspired by the wealth of knowledge shared.

Jonathan White,
Senior Director Of Engineering, Liberty IT

As always hashtag#QConLondon becomes a source of inspiration for me. It is amazing the amount of things that are moving on the technology and software development worlds. The (current and future) impact of Generative AI in our ways of working, the socio-technical considerations that one has to make and the raise of Platform Engineering as a prominent need to be able to establish new things in the organization are just a few examples of topics covered in this amazing conference...

This is a conference by engineers for engineers. I didn't feel like I was being sold something as part of the presentations, but rather like I was learning from what is actually happening in other companies.
