A Preview: Oracle Connects the Dots at LinuxCon/CloudOpen/ContainerCon

By 2015-08-038月 22nd, 2017Blog
I’m really pleased with the lineup of keynote speakers and sessions we have planned for LinuxCon, CloudOpen and ContainerCon taking place in Seattle in just two short weeks. Content is our first priority for these events, and I think developers, SysAdmins and executives will be happy with what they find in the keynote hall, session rooms and workshops.

The keynote lineup in particular includes leaders from ZipCar, IBM, Docker, Intel, SUSE, Cloud Foundry, Blockstream and more. It seemed especially natural this year, the first year that ContainerCon will be co-located with LinuxCon, that we’d invite Oracle’s Senior Vice President Wim Coekaerts to speak. Oracle is one of the biggest contributors to Linux but it’s also at the forefront of exploring what is possible with cloud computing and containers, including integrations with Docker and contributions to the Open Container Initiative.

Wim will be talking at the event specifically about how the cloud revolution is changing the role of the operating system, a very relevant topic for attendees. I spoke to Wim at Oracle’s campus in Redwood Shores a few weeks ago, and in this short video preview, Wim tells if the operating system still matters in a world of virtualization and containers and how that impacts application development. Take a quick look at what’s in store at our largest annual event. Also if you want to join us please register because it looks likely that we will sell out.
