Software development is a rapidly growing industry with more demand for programmers across the spectrum. Nowadays mobile apps are another huge area that offer career opportunities beyond just websites and desktop programs/enterprise applications.
The QCon San Francisco conference is a large gathering of software developers from around the world. The 2015 event runs for a total of 3 conference days and 2 optional workshop days.
The first three days are full of incredible speakers and are certainly worth attending.
But if you have the extra time it might be working staying on the 19th & 20th for extra workshops. You can learn everything from building your first iOS application to the fundamentals of Java programming.
Mid-November is fast approaching so if you’d like to attend then register now before tickets are sold out.
They’ve also released a brief intro video for people thinking of attending in the future.
