QCon NewYork

By CIOReview | Monday, June 4, 2018

QCon New York  is not just a software conference, it’s the software conference where leading shops like Netflix, Google, Gilt and Coinbase open their doors and give us a glimpse into their greatest engineering feats (and in some cases, their biggest failures). QCon is the place where senior software engineers, tech leads, and architects come together to learn, share, and push each other to drive innovation.

What makes QCon New York so special? QCon brings together incredible knowledge in one location with the people driving software forward. Over 1200 software engineers join together at QCon. If this is your tribe, it’s the place you’ll want to be. Guy Podjarny, the co-founder of Snyk Security in the United Kingdom, is one of QCon New York’s confirmed keynotes this year.

QCon New York, the 7th annual software developers’ conference held in New York and hosted at the Times Square Marriott Marquis, features 15 tracks covering all aspects of software development. There are topics like: Microservices: Patterns & Practices, Architectures You've Always Wondered About, Container and Orchestration Platforms in Action, Developer Experience: Level up Your Engineering Effectiveness, Practical Machine Learning, and more.

The conference has a reputation for content developed and is curated for senior developers, architects, and leaders who drive change and innovation on their teams. Take a look at just a few of our sessions:
