We’re proud to showcase some of the best thinkers and operators in the cloud tech industry at our upcoming GeekWire Cloud Tech Summit, which will be held June 7 at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue. The technical tracks highlight the amazing work taking place in artificial intelligence and machine learning; DevOps implementation; and microservices and serverless computing.
Among the speakers in the technical tracks:
- Avi Cavale, CEO of Shippable, will introduce “a systematic approach to DevOps that is both actionable and measurable, and addresses the challenges most organizations face today while embracing DevOps.”
- Nell Shamrell-Harrington, senior software engineer at Chef, who will walk us through the history of DevOps and where this concept is headed in the future.
- Diego Oppenheimer, CEO of Algorithmia, who will talk about why microservices and serverless technologies are the breakthrough machine-learning researchers were waiting for.
Charity Majors, co-founder of Honeycomb, talk about distributed systems, microservices, containers/schedulers and continuous delivery in a talk entitled “When Logs and Metrics Fail Us: The Glorious Future of Observability.”
- Rahul Singh, CEO of Distelli, will discuss “Distributed Caching in a World of Microservices, Docker and Kubernetes.”
- Jasjeet Thind, vice president of data science and engineering at Zillow, will explain how to test and deploy real-time machine learning services “given the challenge that machine learning algorithms produce nondeterministic behaviors even for the same input.”
Those are just some of the highlights. A full list of our tech talks is here.
Other speakers during the day include Microsoft Azure chief Scott Guthrie; Docker COO Scott Johnston; Cloud Foundry Executive Director Abby Kearns; Amazon AI Vice President Swami Sivasubramian; Google VP of Product Management Sam Ramji; and Joe Beda, CTO of Heptio and co-developer of Kubernetes, who will discuss how best to organize your technology group around the principles of cloud-native development. (I wrote a preview of Joe’s session earlier this month.)
