What are the schedule phases?
Because each of our tracks is curated by a track hosts, our schedules take longer. The schedule phases show how the schedule evolves. It starts with phase 1. In this phase, we are selecting the topics and track hosts for QCon. Phase 2 is determining what day each track will be on. Phase 3 is a partial schedule when 50% of the content is available. The final phase is Phase 4 when we are "content complete." You will see all of these stages as the content comes in. Content complete often occurs about one month prior to the start of the conference.
