Brand Promise
  • QCon speakers are pragmatic scientists who also share their failures. That is: they describe the problem, the solutions applied, the resulting carnage, the reason for failure, how they arrived at a working solution, and the reason why this particular solution works. Worth more than a thousand glossy folders.

    - Vincent Disselkoen
    Architect: Technical Application @Swiss Mobiliar Insurances
  • Some fantastic speakers from some fantastic companies, a chance to hear from industry leaders about pitfalls and best practices. Lots of new and different perspectives on many different aspects of what it takes to deliver effective software in the internet-scale world.

    - Christopher Massie
    Senior Developer @JP Morgan Chase
  • The speakers were top experts in their domain, it opened my eyes to many new aspects which I tend to overlook in my day-to-day work and gave me the opportunity to stop the routine for a second and take a look at the future possibilities.

    - Tzufit Barzilay
    Senior Developer Ltd
  • I love that QCon aims for introducing Early adopter and Early majority topics. It really helped me to stay ahead of the curve as much as possible

    - Rafael Ordog
    Software Developer @Emarsys-Technologies Kft
  • I enjoy speaking at QCon because of the excellent mix of attendees. I had as many interesting conversations off-stage as I saw good talks on stage - and there were plenty of great talks to watch too!

    - Anne Currie (Speaker)
  • QCon is one of the larger London conferences and has a significant focus on emerging and thought leading concepts. This is the sort of event where I can get the best challenge and interaction with my content as a speaker.

    - Doug Talbot (Speaker)
  • QCon was the first software conference I ever went to. The talks I've seen have been consistently a very high standard so I was flattered to be asked to be part of it.

    - Sarah Wells (Speaker)
  • Speaking at QCon London is the best opportunity to engage with a large audience of enthusiastic technology practitioners. If you're really trying to improve the way the industry as a whole is developing, then this is the place to make a difference.

    - Mark Price (Speaker)
