PANEL DISCUSSION

Connecting the Dots: Considerations in Modern Software Development

At QCon, we get the opportunity to hear about new and interesting ways to tackle the technical challenges we face. We leave energized and eager to apply some of the solutions and alternatives that we’ve learned with our own teams. However, it can be difficult to connect the dots between the compelling stories we hear about technological transformation with new technology and the work we do day to day.

Join some leading experts in Socially Conscious Software to share your challenges, hear from others who have similar challenges, and collaborate together on ways to take what you’ve learned at QCon back to work.
