2020 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, remote teams, and architecture.

Talked this week at QCon London - first time in a while I'd like to publicly praise a conference due to amazing quality of organisation. Well done, #qconlondon, you are an example how a large, multi-track conference should be organised.

Love #QConLondon seen lots of observations on Twitter regarding diversity at the conference. Clear the conference organisers get the problem and are trying. Props.

@QCon conferences remain my favorite. They’re so focused on a good experience for attendees and speakers and are amazing support to have. Very grateful to be running a track this year. Full circle for me as the first time my work was presented was @qconlondon many years ago 😄.

Well-organized conference where speakers were self-reflective and shared their pitfalls and their war stories, in order to learn from these experiences. Addressing real problems to solve, dealing with trade-offs and cognitive load has been emphasized. A very good place for early adopters.
