Think 2021 is your chance to connect with subject-matter experts, explore the latest tech, and build your skillset to make yourself indispensable. This year’s event offers you the chance to get certified in technologies through new courses, try out new products, and work with the experts behind emerging technologies — from Kubernetes to quantum and edge computing. This year, Code @ Think is a dedicated track for you to engage with the greater community of developer and open source leaders to explore key technologies through unparalleled interactive experiences.

You won’t find a series of sales pitches or product demos heavy on business jargon. What you will get is a deeper understanding of the different approaches to modernizing and developing apps in a hybrid cloud world, so that you can bring the speed and interoperability of open, cloud-native tech to your work. Explore the present (and future) of how AI-powered automation can combat bias in models, streamline complex processes, and transform how entire industries operate. Understand how leading technologies on an open cloud can address key societal issues, from climate change to racial justice, with Call for Code. Learn how you can shield your organization against cyber uncertainty with a modern security strategy that monitors and adapts to growing threats and orchestrates intelligent, proactive responses — all while remaining compliant with increasingly strict regulatory and privacy requirements.

And you won’t just be hearing from us. You’ll meet and collaborate with leading technologists, subject-matter experts, IBM clients and business partners, analysts, and countless others who are working on today’s most important issues and challenges.

Here’s just a snapshot of what you’ll be able to experience during Code @ Think:

  • Participate in Master Classes and Labs that offer deep-dive, interactive sessions around containers, microservices, DevOps, quantum, edge computing, blockchain, cloud, AI, and much more.

  • Advance through Certification Testing across a variety of industry-recognized subject matter, and pass mastery exams for IBM technologies.

  • View on-demand sessions, presented with IBM clients and partners, covering topics from AI to app modernization and containers.

  • Tune in for the Call for Code: Answer the Call Innovation Talk to hear about what we’ve accomplished together, catch up with the 2020 Challenge winner, and see what happens when you answer the call.

  • Attend Office Hours to talk with speakers and experts and have your questions answered, giving you the opportunity to engage more deeply with the technology and topics you explore at Think.

  • Join the Build Smart on Kubernetes Challenge (May 10, 7:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT): A progressive workshop comprised of three, quick-coding, 15-minute exercises, each exploring a different aspect of the skills or technology needed for cloud-native development. (You could win a branded guitar!)
