Randall Ross explains the new directions for OpenPOWER Developer Congress
21 Apr 2017 San Francisco - "Key members of the OpenPOWER Foundation envisioned something completely different in their quest to create the perfect developer event", says Randall Ross on the OpenPOWER blog, "something that has never been done before: What if developers at a developer event actually spent their time developing?" The OpenPOWER Foundation anwser is to create the first ever Developer Congress, a hands-on event that will take place May 22-25 in San Francisco. The Congress will focus on all aspects of full stack solutions - software, hardware, infrastructure, and tooling - and developers will have the opportunity to learn and develop solutions amongst peers in a collaborative and supportive environment.
The Developer Congress will provide ISVs with development, porting, and optimization tools and techniques necessary to utilize multiple technologies, for example: PowerAI, TensorFlow, Chainer, Anaconda, GPU, FPGA, CAPI, POWER, and OpenBMC. Experts in the latest hot technologies such as deep learning, machine learning, artificial intelligence, databases and analytics, and cloud will be on hand to provide one-on-one advice as needed.
