Let’s talk systems at CodeConf LA: June 27-29, 2016

CodeConf LA is happening next month

We’re welcoming the open source community to Los Angeles for three days of talks, workshops, and festivities. CodeConf LA is approaching fast, so grab your ticket or donate one today.

Theme

This year’s event will focus on systems engineering projects, practices, and programs in the open source community. Together, we’ll delve into the technical components and cultural aspects of systems—from maintaining critical infrastructure projects to teaching the next generation of systems engineers.

Sessions

June 27: A full day of workshops on using Innersource, Git internals, and graph databases June 28-29: More than 25 featured sessions, lightning talks, and speaker Q&As

Over the course of the conference, there will be back-to-back talks exploring different subjects from contrasting perspectives, followed by a chance to participate in the conversation with other attendees.

Speakers

This year’s event rounds up more than 20 speakers from across the open source community—including developers, designers, and data technicians from Mozilla, the US Department of Commerce, and IBM. We’re also welcoming featured speakers:

  • Michael Bernstein, Vice President of Community at Code Climate
  • Josh Aas, Executive Director at Let’s Encrypt
  • Nadia Eghbal, Founder and Venture Capitalist
  • Kelsey Hightower, Developer at Google
  • Mitchell Hashimoto, Founder and CEO at HashiCorp

Stay tuned for a more detailed speaker schedule, which we’ll be rolling out over the next few weeks.
