In less than a week, we’re bringing together the best of three dynamic IBM conferences— Impact, Innovate and Pulse —into a single cloud and mobile event. This means all of today’s most important technologies, including Cloud, Mobile, DevOps, IoT and more will all be at IBM InterConnect 2015. But it doesn’t end there— dev@InterConnect will join thousands of software developers, architects, designers, and programmers together for two days of sessions, training, and building.
A New Way to Think, Work and Design the Future
During InterConnect’s General Sessions, innovative enterprises like Airbus and Coriell Life Sciences along with trailblazers like Firemonkeys and SilverHook Powerboats will share their secrets on how to maximize the value of their IT investments.
IBM thought leaders and clients will discuss reinventing processes and customer engagement, empowering roles across the organization and designing the future with cloud and mobile. Barbara Corcoran, Daymond John, and Robert Herjavec of Shark Tank will join InterConnect as General Session guest speakers. Check out the entire list of general sessions and keynotes here.
Oculus Rift, NodeCopter, Raspberry Pi, Oh my!
dev@ will include a full day of can’t-miss activities in the next-generation camps: Camp Cloud, Camp Mobile and Camp Watson. Each camp has its own Ignite talks, workshops, hands-on activities, access to experts for Build Consultations, lunch discussions, labs and certifications.
I’d personally recommend attending ‘Let’s Build a Start Up in 30 Minutes Using Bluemix and IoT’ and ‘Intro to Bluemix & DevOps.’ These are just two of the many Bluemix workshops during dev@.
There will even be a developer playground where you can get hands-on with beta offerings, development tools and programming challenges using Oculus Rift, NodeCopter drones and more.
Make sure to stop by the Bluemix Reception on Monday night for food, craft beer, Ignite Talks and networking. Ricky Robinett, Twilio developer evangelist and Bluemix guest blogger, will be speaking about Watson APIs that developers can use. For dev@ topics and speakers, check out this list.
Can’t make it to InterConnect this year?
Not to fear! We’ll not only be covering the conference on our social channels but now with InterConnectGo, you can watch a live stream of the three full days that can be accessed on any device.
We invite you to follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook in order to get the latest updates at InterConnect and dev@. Stay tuned for more exciting Bluemix announcements!
