Track: Speaker AMAs (Ask Me Anything)

Location: Guild, Mezzanine

Day of week: Wednesday

QCon has 18 technical and 4 sponsored tracks across the three conference days.

Each of the technical tracks represents a vertical conference focused on a technology or trend in software. Often times, important concentrations develop at the conference outside of those tracks. The AMAs are a way to address these microtracks or just to get your questions answered with popular speakers. The idea with the AMAs is to create a space for general Q&A around these topics and speakers.

AMAs are an informal gathering for Q&A. Bring your questions for in depth conversations with QCon speakers.
