Software is changing the world. In 2006, Floyd Marinescu, along with Roxanne Beverstein, and Alex Popescu, saw a need for unbiased content and information in the enterprise development community. That's where we - with your help - stepped in. With a mission and passion for empowering developers, we founded C4Media to build a "community of communities created by the community and for the community."



Global Footprint

Today, we're a global firm with offices in Canada, the United States, China, Romania, Brazil, Japan, France, Greece and our two core brands are InfoQ and QCon.






InfoQ content is currently published in English, Chinese, Japanese and Brazilian Portuguese. With a current readership base of over 1,200,000 unique visitors per month and growing, InfoQ's mission is to facilitate the spread of knowledge and innovation in enterprise software development. It is the software industry's leading community-based resource for practitioner-led education. We're passionate about what we do, and we thank you, our community of innovative practitioners and influencers, for your continued engagement, trust, and loyalty.





QCon Conferences

QCon is a community-driven conference with over 100 speakers and thousands of influential, inspiring attendees driving innovation in software development. QCon conferences are meant to inspire with fresh ideas and connections with amazing people. Designed by practitioners who are solving the tough problems in leading companies, QCon features independent and unbiased content, techniques, and technologies that drive software development forward.

In June 2012, we launched QCon New York and today we have conferences in eight global cities. Visit the QCon page for current dates.
