2019 Hosts and Tracks

What is a QCon track? Each "editorial" track (that's what we call the curated talks focused on developer lessons) is a collection of software topics curated by a domain expert in areas such as culture, data science, machine learning, front-end technologies, and architecture.

This has been an awesome conference, after speaking with others I think it’s due to the super technical content, quality speakers, and lack of vendor talks #qconlondon so glad I could be here :)

Great and diverse selection of tracks, different than other conferences plus Open Spaces, AMAs, etc. Organizers are open to new ideas and are very happy to try new things for a better conference experience. Talking to the organizers Silke, Wes and Dio during lunch and exchanging ideas and feedback was very nice and showed that you really care about the conference and making it a great experience for everyone.

QCon London 2019

I would recommend QCon. It has a wide variety of topics that would pique developers' interest. What makes QCon different is the span of topics, other conferences might only be centered around a single stack or a single technology but QCon binds these all together so we can bond over the love for new tech.
