Software is changing the world! In 2006, Floyd Marinescu, together with Roxanne Beverstein, and Alex Popescu, saw a need for unbiased content and information in the enterprise development community. This is how C4Media—provider of InfoQ and QCon—was created.
C4 = Community of Communities created by the Community & for the Community.
Today, C4Media is serving the worldwide enterprise software development community with a place to track and facilitate change and innovation. All content published on our websites and presented at our events is put together by industry practitioners. Our mission is to facilitate the spread of knowledge and innovation in the software developer community.
InfoQ is a practitioner-driven global community serving the information needs of senior developers, technical team leads, software architects, and project managers. Every day we create and share content in 4 different languages by developers for developers. With a readership base of over 1,000,000 unique visitors per month, we support hundreds of contributors worldwide who want to share their ideas about software trends and best practices with the software community.
QCon is a practitioner-driven conference designed for senior developers, technical team leads, software architects, and project managers who influence software innovation in their teams. It’s where progressive software leaders come to find out about emerging software trends and innovations, so they can develop new skills and validate their team’s software roadmap. QCon conferences are organized annually in San Francisco, New York, London, Munich, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and online.
