QCon Plus November 2021 is a wrap!

Thank you to the 2,000 senior software engineers, software architects, and team leads who joined us at QCon Plus in November 2021. Over 80 software leaders driving innovation and change shared their practical insights and use cases to help attendees validate their technical roadmap. QCon Plus attendees told us how the event helped them find solutions to their challenges, adopt the right software innovations and practices, and reduce uncertainty on which technologies should be part of their roadmap. Join us at our next QCon Plus online software development conference (May 10-20, 2022)

@Felienne 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.

#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? #teamtopologies #microservices #scalability
