Keynote: Congratulations, Kubernetes! - Chen Goldberg, Director of Engineering, Google Cloud

Congratulations, Kubernetes!

W00t! With the risk of sounding cliche graduation is a very exciting time, it marks both an ending and a beginning. Looking back on my journey with Kubernetes, I have memories of significant milestones for this project like establishing a release cadance and announcing the Certified Kubernetes Conformance Program. There were key lessons along the way, with learning opportunities at every turn. Join me as I talk through some of the most memorable memories and what I have learned from them.

Keynote: Security is Everyone's Responsibility - Marten Mickos, CEO, HackerOne
Cybersecurity is a $100 billion market that's wasting resources and frustrating customers with inadequate protection. We need security designed into products, not applied on top of them. We need ubiquitous security, not just on the perimeter. We need openness and collaboration. And we need to make security the responsibility of everyone, not just the CISO and their team. If we don't learn from the breaches of the past, they will continue to increase in size and frequency, slowing down society, harming companies and consumers. In this talk, Marten Mickos presents a vision for a world where everyone is diligent about cybersecurity and thereby the total cost of it goes down, not up.

Keynote: AI Owes its Rebirth to Open Source and the Cloud - Mark Russinovich, CTO, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft

AI technologies and techniques are experiencing a renaissance. Open source technologies and communities have fostered the growth of self-taught machine learning developers with libraries and frameworks. The computing power of the cloud has made the processing of large data sets cost effective and commonplace. As more research continues to be done and shared throughout the communities we will continue to see more intelligent apps driving even greater adoption of open source technologies across all processing platforms.

Keynote: Serverless State of the Union - Austen Collins, Founder & CEO, Serverless Inc.
Serverless has captivated the IT community at an incredible pace, and for good reason.  It has tremendous power to liberate productivity, increase innovation and reduce overhead.  However, adopting serverless technologies is still not well understood.  As the ecosystem grows around serverless, we’re empowered with options, yet further distanced us from a clear path to adoption.

In this talk, we’ll break through the clutter to investigate use-cases, adoption methods, the power of serverless now and it’s capacity to meet the demands of the future.  We’ll also look into open-source, community-led projects within the Cloud Native Computing Foundation that aim to advance the adoption of serverless technologies, while enabling interoperability and an open ecosystem.

Keynote: Realizing the Full Potential of NOAA’s Open Data - Edward Kearns, Chief Data Officer, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been a government leader in Open Data for many decades. NOAA’s science-based mission includes, for example, the protection of life and property from weather events, the regulation of marine fisheries in a sustainable manner, the monitoring of climate change,  the protection of marine mammals, and the long-term preservation of environmental information. In the course of achieving this mission, NOAA collects, analyzes, synthesizes and distributes many petabytes of data every year, and NOAA has realized the potential value of these data when shared in a full and open manner, with no restrictions on others’ use of these taxpayer-funded data. NOAA’s mission benefits from enabling scientific research in the academic community that ultimately improves NOAA’s products and services to the Nation. The US economy benefits from the jobs created by industry through the provision, interpretation and integration of NOAA open data into a variety of value-added products and services.  And our global society benefits through the sharing of these open data which are used by governments and industries alike to evaluate and respond to risks from environmental events such as extreme weather, rising sea levels, threats to food supplies, droughts and floods.  A brief history of Open Data in NOAA will be discussed, and a new initiative to realize their full potential through Partnerships that promote the wider use of these data will be described.
