Open Source Summit 2019 is almost here (August 21-23, 2019), and it’s shaping up to be an exciting conference. From a fun “coding for coffee” challenge to all the incredible speakers with open source talks covering the latest in technology — we’re excited to connect with you at Booth #6.

Test your coding skills: Code for Coffee Quick Lab

Great news — Coffee is good for you! According to a recent study, you can drink up to 25 cups of coffee a day with no long-term ill effects.

During Open Source Summit, we challenge you to use your coding skills for coffee. In 15 minutes or less, with a few lines of code, you’ll train a machine learning model to identify coffee mugs, bags, and a supporting cast of donuts. You can then claim victory and a special coffee-focused prize. Join us at IBM Booth 6 to engage in our Code for Coffee Object Recognition quick lab!
