Editorial Positioning

InfoQ, QCon and the Technology Adoption Curve

 

Development Managers, Architects, and Project Managers read InfoQ.com - and attend QCon - to learn about the next wave of innovative, game-changing technologies, those that usually fall in the ‘Innovators’ and 'Early Adopters' segment of the technology adoption lifecycle:

 

 

InfoQ and QCon’s 2016 editorial coverage will focus on some of the key technologies that are in the Innovator and Early Adopter phases, as well as those that are in the process of 'crossing the chasm', as it were:

 

 

Presentations from companies driving innovation in these areas - Netflix, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google - can be found in abundance on InfoQ.

 

As early adopter technologies move through the 'Early Majority' and 'Late Majority' segments of the adoption curve, InfoQ's coverage of these topics shifts to success stories, best practices, and design patterns that usually take the form of practitioner-authored case studies, interviews, articles and presentations recorded at QCon and other industry events.
