What is QCon?

QCon is a practitioner-driven conference designed for senior software engineers, team leads and architects. There is no other software conference in the US with similar opportunities for learning, networking, and tracking innovation occurring in the enterprise software development community in New York. Plus, we always have awesome speakers!

We invite students, interns and other IT-interested individuals to volunteer at QCon and participate.

What to expect from this Volunteer Opportunity?

As QCon volunteer you will help with logistical onsite support during the event – including badge scanning, directing attendees to their seats, registration staffing, conference or/and tutorial room monitoring and other similar onsite event work. Being a room monitor will allow you to attend some presentations and /or workshops for free in return for some help. Typical days run from 7AM to 7PM. Volunteers are invited to attend the conference social as well.

There will also be a drawing for a prize on the last day of the event - for the volunteers only. You will need to have fulfilled at least 3 full days of volunteer work to be able to win. We will try to accommodate specific schedules. We are looking for volunteers who are available at least 3 full days during the conference days (between Tuesday and Thursday). Volunteers who have more availability will be given priority.

QCon New York volunteers are expected to take care of their own transportation, parking and lodging. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for free during the course of the week as part of the conference. Volunteers who need a volunteer certification at the end of the week, please let us know. Please note that representatives from sponsor companies are not eligible to be a QCon volunteer.
