A 3 day conference on everything Microservices, DDD and Software Architecture

This new conference builds on the successes of the original muCon and our DDD eXchange, the latter being one of our longest running Conferences. Broadening the conversations with these key themes - Microservices and DDD - beyond each individual Conference, we have developed these crucial topics to create a bigger event with a stronger focus on software design and architecture.

The new muCon London 2019 will give you the chance to explore these topics in greater depth across a three day Conference with multiple tracks of thought-provoking content.

The flexibility of these topics will allow you to cherry-pick the talks most relevant to you, or try something completely new.

Once again you'll have the chance to learn from leading experts on Microservices, DDD and Software Architecture - with VIP keynotes from the likes of Michael C. Feathers, Julie Lerman, Simon Wardley, Liz Rice, Diana Montalion, Mathias Verraes and many more to be announced soon! Explore our confirmed speakers here.

Follow us at #mucon for all the latest updates on the conference!

Tickets

We have some great Early Bird offers still available, so if you are planning to join us for three days packed with microservices fun, get your skates on and book your ticket today!

muCon Party - Wednesday 29th May

Attendees at Skills Matter Party

Did you enjoy the first day of muCon? It's party time now! Visit the Skills Matter booth during muCon for a Party Ticket (tickets are limited to 400 only - so grab one while they last!) to enjoy our Party at Codenode's {{SpaceBar}} and share your experience and impressions of muCon with other muCon attendees.

We will have our very own muCon double decker routemaster buses bringing you from the BDC (Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street) to CodeNode. Buses will be ready outside the BDC once the conference ends on Wednesday 29th May (straight after the last session at 6.15pm) to bring you to CodeNode!

If you prefer the good old London Underground, CodeNode is a five-minute walk from Moorgate Tube Station, which is just two stops from Angel (the closest station to the BDC, where muCon takes place), and it's served by the Northern Line.

You can come along from the conference or meet us at CodeNode for an evening of good music, games, food and drinks – a chance to share your ideas with each other in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. We look forward to having you with us!

And if you need some help finding your way home/to your hotel once the party's over, please visit the Transport for London's website which contains full information on how to move around in London.
