ARMONK, NY - 19 Apr 2017: IBM (NYSE:IBM) today announced that Jason McGee, IBM Fellow, VP and CTO of IBM Cloud Platform, will be keynoting at the Serverless Conference in Austin, Texas. Taking place April 26 th – 28th, Serverless Austin is part of a global network of community-led developer conferences, focused on sharing experiences and techniques around building apps with serverless cloud architecture.
Serverless is the next stage of cloud computing, as it abstracts away infrastructure and servers from developers. This enables developer teams to better express creativity and focus on creating high-performing and intelligent user experiences and app features, instead of infrastructure configuration and management. Additionally, the flexibility of serverless computing frees up members of developer teams to rapidly work on different pieces of code within an app simultaneously, accelerating development and deployment times.
In his keynote, Jason will be outlining the strategy, momentum and vision for Bluemix OpenWhisk, IBM’s serverless platform. Tapping the principles of serverless, OpenWhisk allows developers to execute advanced code and cloud services on-demand and as-needed, such as cognitive intelligence, data analytics and Internet of Things services.
OpenWhisk’s unique ability to rapidly infuse cognitive intelligence into apps and data is fueling a new wave of innovation, helping companies to quickly build new and intelligent innovations in areas ranging from sustainable city operations to video production to mobile banking.
Jason’s keynote will take place on Friday, April 28th at 9:45 a.m. CT. For more information on Serverless Austin, visit https://austin.serverlessconf.io/home.html.
