It’s a busy week in San Francisco when it comes to tech conferences. First of all, we’ve got the ever popular QCon at the Hyatt Regency, and just a short Uber ride away, taking place at the Hilton, is the DevOps Enterprise Summit, or DOES16 for short.
The intellectual appeal of QCon
In my experience, I’ve always felt QCon appeals to a slightly more technical crowd than say OracleWorld or JavaOne, which is one of the reasons it’s so popular with readers of TheServerSide. We’ve already pushed up some pre-conference coverage for QCon with articles covering a few of the more popular, trending topic for 2016 including IoT, microservices, API development and DevOps. Here they are:
- Handling of IoT data the key to edge device scalability with Basho’s Pavel Hardak.
- Simplify microservices dev with the Go kit library with Weaveworks’ Peter Bourgon.
- Well-designed APIs are a DevOps best practice with Cisco’s Ashley Roach.
We’ve also got a few DOES16 articles in the queue, including a podcast with Tasktop CEO Mik Kersten. and another interview with Agile expert Alexandre Freire about DevOps implementation and maintaining high levels of software quality in your Agile and Scrum teams. Truth be told, Freire’s speaking at QCon, but we talked enough about DevOps that it fits in more with the DOES16 coverage.
Continuing QCon and DOES16 coverage
If you’re lucky enough to be attending either one of these great conferences, then consider yourself lucky. And in fact, if you garner any great insights, let us know and we can help share them with the community. If you can’t attend, don’t worry, because TheServerSide and others in the TechTarget family will be keeping you up to date on what’s happening.
