We have 2 days of non-stop action, starting at 9:00am PST on February 13th and 14th. Our guests will show off the latest in AI, containers, and open source.

We’re pleased to invite some of our friends from Red Hat onto our stream as well. Guests will include Ishu Verma, who will be talking about Red Hat’s IoT platform and how it relates to edge computing; and Gordon Haff who will be talking about open source: what it is, what it is not, and his thoughts on the future of open source.
