Subject: Special Invite to the QCon SF Enterprise Software Development Conference, Nov. 5th-9th -- Member Discount Available

[The following announcement is being sent on behalf of the organizers of the QCon Conference.  OASIS is an event supporter. ]

What is QCon?


QCon San Francisco (QConSF) is a practitioner-driven conference designed for team leads, architects and project managers.



The program includes over 80 speakers, 6 concurrent tracks, and many breaks, parties, and opportunities for networking. There is no other event on the west coast with similar opportunities for learning, networking, and tracking innovation occurring in the Agile, Project Management, Java, .NET, HTML5, Mobile, and Architecture communities.


Where is QCon San Francisco taking place this year?


QConSF is taking place at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, in the Embarcadero area of the city. Last year's event brought together over 750 practitioner-attendees. With more attendees expected this year (at least 800), the event has moved to a bigger venue.


How long does the conference run?


QCon San Francisco features 3 full conference days (Nov. 7 - 9, 2012) and 2 days of tutorials (Nov. 5 - 6, 2012).


This year's event will also feature GraphConnect, a two day, co-located event with tutorials and sessions focused entirely on graph databases and the applications making sense of connected data. GraphConnect will run concurrently with the QCon SF tutorial days (Nov 5-6).
