What has always stood out for me has been QCon's commitment to its brand promises. First of all, it's focused on practitioner content. QCon conferences are all about the people that develop and work with future technologies. This starts from the Programming Committee, which comprises practitioners that are authorities in their domain.

It's my favorite conference to learn about real experiences from real projects and real professionals.
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.
Donnie Berkholz, Ph.D.
QCon London 2023. ✅ Done. It was a beautiful trip (3 days) along my professional path but oriented to the discovery of new scenarios. It is increasingly difficult to let oneself be guided by what has been done over the years, not remaining tied to beliefs or dogmas but constantly looking to the future. QCon masterfully blends these scenarios giving you continuous confirmations that the path taken is correct but at the same time leads you to new challenges making...
CTO @ Immobiliare.it
QCon is like the SuperBowl of technology conferences - expertly curated tracks, aimed at experienced individuals - it's a wonderland for learning, meeting people and just celebrating technology and the innovations in our industries. I leave the event with many things that I can take back and improve when back at work as well as being energised again. From the quality of the talks, the venue and organisation and the best keynotes daily, it's the highlight of my conference year!
Richard Roché, Principal Engineer
The best part about QCon is that is not vendor driven. So there is less emphasis on selling products but more on the problem statement, tech agnostic solutions, processes and practices that have worked for others. And this is really powerful.
