Bad Science, Better Data

“True nerds know the opportunities, but also the pitfalls. Analyses can be flawed by design. Bad governance can stifle innovation while also losing public trust for a generation. Money can be hosed away on shiny promises, while simple quick wins are ...”

Sarah Wells

Former Tech Director for Engineering Enablement @FT (Financial Times)

Mature Microservices and How to Operate Them

“You need to make sure you know when something's wrong. It is extremely easy with microservice architecture to get inundated with alerts because you just start monitoring for all your systems. But what you want to know is what's actually broken? ...”

Ben Sigelman

Co-Founder @LightStepHQ & Co-Creator Dapper & @OpenTracing API Standard

Restoring Confidence in Microservices: Tracing That's More Than Traces

“Distributed traces, I think, are necessary to understand that complexity, but we will never, ever actually get to the bottom of these issues, at least not in short order unless we employ much more intelligent analyses of that raw data than we're doing ...”

Peter Morgan

AI Community Leader & Founder and CEO Deep Learning Partnership

Building Artificial General Intelligence

“What are we missing? What we're missing is the big picture, which is what is intelligence? I'm going to answer that question for you now. It's not really a mystery if you think about ...”

  • Thomas Leu Developer @Adcubum AG Great and diverse selection of tracks, different than other conferences plus Open Spaces, AMAs, etc. Organizers are open to new ideas and are very happy to try new things for a better conference experience. Talking to the organizers Silke, Wes and Dio during lunch and exchanging ideas and feedback was very nice and showed that you really care about the conference and making it a great experience for everyone.

  • Mathias Faanes Olsen Software Developer @Finn.no I would recommend QCon. It has a wide variety of topics that would pique developers' interest. What makes QCon different is the span of topics, other conferences might only be centered around a single stack or a single technology but QCon binds these all together so we can bond over the love for new tech. QCon London 2019 QCon London 2019
  • Michael Walsh Software Engineer @Redgate Software I like QCon because it offers talks on such a wide variety of topics from experts all over the industry, and offers a friendly environment to connect with other like-minded individuals. QCon London 2019 QCon London 2019
