Qcon Plus

Loved by senior software developers like you

See what past attendees and peers have to say on social media about #QConPlus

Too many incredible questions to ask & practices to try to improve #QConPlus.

Keynote at #qconplus was spectacular. I loved the slide format from the outset, was engaged by the memory challenges and learned so much.

What you know influences what you can process," rang true. Great advice about how to get better at reading code.

High-profile speakers. I feel like I can trust that the speakers will know their stuff. I also noticed the high percentage of women presenting which I found refreshing. Let's hope other conferences will follow this example.

#qcon has already provoked so much thought in me and I hope all the other attendees. Everyone aims to find quicker ways to deliver value to their consumers. What can we do to get there?

Great content on a variety of subjects practical to my daily work.

It is vendor-neutral, so it isn't slanted. Even the sponsored content didn't feel very salesy. That was nice.

The format is cool (pre-recorded video, the speaker in the chat, time for live questions, etc), timings are OK (we have enough break time to have a life).

The speakers are highly knowledgeable about the subject they present and some topics are bleeding edge.

The quality of the content is exceptional.

The diversity of speakers and attendees was much better than any previous in-person conference. Not sure if that was because it was virtual or the talk selection process or both. But, well done. It was easy to come in and out of talks. There was only a time or two that I switched, but it was easy to do.

QCon Plus is a fantastic event. It brought up the case and situations that we can live in our daily lives as site reliability engineers.
