Hottest Topics

TensorFlow

This session will provide an update for the TensorFlow community and opportunity to meet community members interested in developing deep open community collaboration for the TensorFlow Build community and the Tensor2Tensor initiative. TensorFlow/Keras are the leading deep learning frameworks, and participants will have a chance to meet some of the people working to build open source AI communities around TensorFlow/Keras, and of course share what they are doing and explore new future initiatives as well.

Cloud Foundry

Cloud Foundry Community Day is a half day of discussions, demos, and a thought leadership panel on all things Cloud Foundry (CF). We will cover what is new in each PMC of CF and their important projects. Come and learn about the latest additions to the CLI, including the revamped $cf push command as well as the runtime v3 APIs and how that will allow various new features, including native blue-green deployment.

Kubernetes SIGs

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are the life blood of many open source community development projects, and this is certainly true of Kubernetes – the founding project of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), originated by Google. If you have been learning about and/or experimenting with Kubernetes and want to know how you can get move involved, please join us Tuesday morning for the SIG F2F Update/Kickoff.

Open API Initiative

Bring your API, leave with an OpenAPI Spec! Experts and community members will be on hand for a four-hour hack space to help you create an OpenAPI spec for your API! Learn about the 3.0 spec, tooling, documentation and code generation, and more, and then create an OpenAPI spec for your own API!
