About this event

Uncover emerging trends and practices from the world’s most innovative software professionals.

Software delivery practices evolve fast. So should your learning. But what should you be focusing on to improve your skills and shape your software roadmap?

As software developers, we know the best way to learn is from each other. QCon Plus brings together a global professional engineering community to help senior software developers adopt new technologies and practices.

QCon software development conferences are all about the people that develop and work with future technologies. Our Programming Committee comprises software practitioners that are authorities in their domain. They choose the technologies and trends that are important to cover to help you validate your software roadmap.

At QCon Plus this May17-28, you can expect:

  • Technical talks from 80+ software leaders driving innovation and change.
  • A focus on patterns and practices, not products and pitches
  • Real-time interactive sessions where you can interact with speakers and attendees live.
  • Async learning based on your schedule so you can catch up on talks and conversations.
  • Optional workshops to help you level-up your skills.
  • "We care” experiences to make everyone feel welcome.
  • Implementable ideas you can focus on after the conference.

16 topics will be covered at QCon Plus, including:

  • Observability and Understanding in Production
  • Architectures You've Always Wondered About
  • WebAssembly Throughout the Stack
  • Current and Future Java and JVM Languages
  • System-Level Programming Languages
  • Optimising Your Organisation for Speed: Platforms and Process
