Qcon New York – 2018 Table of Contents

This year, I’m speaking and live blogging from QCon. New York.

140 speakers and 900 attendees. From 38 states plus international. Should be good! As I always, I like the hallway track, emphasis on useful badges, etc. I don’t remember “My QCon Trail” from last year. Goo way to see what you went to, how you voted and how others voted.



  • A brief, opinionated history of the API — Joshua Bloch
  • AMA Josh Bloch
  • Investing in your Java Katalog – Don Raab & Aditi Mantri
  • Effective Java – Josh Bloch (I did a QCon interview for the first half of this session. I used the rest to prepare for my own session. Since I had seen Josh give this presentation before, it was nice hearing it again as “background” as I got ready though. It’s the kind of talk you get a little more from each time you hear it)
  • Mob Programming Mini Workshop – Harold Shinsato
  • Java 11 keeping  the release train on the right track – my talk. I can’t blog about my own session so here is a link to the slides
  • Yo. Ask me Anything – I was on this panel so no blog here either.


I wasn’t able to get Friday off from work so didn’t attend the conference that day.
