What people are saying

At this conference I truly felt how InfoQ is practitioner based. I found myself attending sessions, unconferences, and sharing tables with people I later found leading my sessions. It really gave me a sense of being a peer to the speakers which was cool. I thoroughly enjoyed my experiences at this conference and I hope I'm fortunate enough to be sent again.

QCon is a great way to stay informed of the leading edge of software architecture and development.

Mike Matczynsk

Each time I attend QCon, my mind is opened up to fresh ideas by leaders in their field. I also get to meet and connect with top engineers around the world. Where else can you do that?!
