With supercomputers in our pockets, self-driving vehicles, and software recognizing images better than humans, what we recently thought of as the future is already here, so how do we define the next future? Rod Cope explains how different aspects of artificial intelligence, augmented reality, high-performance computing, digital platforms, massive bandwidth, and an obsessive focus on user experience will be the fundamental drivers to future application success as we build upon lower barriers to entry and shift from improving technology to improving life. Rod shares his 20+ year journey from the forefront of open source to a predicted future where the IoT and big data are the new normal and the key questions are less “How can we do it?” and more “How do we make it better?” Come to this session to learn what you can do now in terms of research, planning, and investment to get the most out of our inevitable future.
As the DevOps movement continues to see momentum, many organizations still don’t know where to start. A common misconception is tooling will make you “DevOps”, while tools can give you software that will allow you to automate or continuously deliver or monitor, alone they won't get you to necessary processes to take advantage of the benefits DevOps has to offer.
In this talk attendees will learn why it’s the people that matter most and how to leverage DevOps best practices along with processes to make the most out of your DevOps journey. Being a champion in the DevOps world means going beyond the win and by delving deeper into the team/organizational structure and culture, thereby identifying outlying issues beyond tools, and then working with others to embrace necessary change that lead to defined results. This talk will lay the groundwork for individuals and/or teams who are looking to transform and adopt DevOps.

In today’s business world, every new decision is a technology decision, and increasingly a cloud decision. Understanding how to align business goals with cloud technology decisions will impact every company’s ability to differentiate itself. In this session, we’ll examine what developer success looks like, and the critical decisions behind successful multi cloud project.
Call for Code a five-year program that inspires developers to create practical, effective, and high-quality applications that can have an immediate and lasting impact on humanitarian issues as sustainable open source projects. Building on the success of the 2018 and 2019 competitions, the Call for Code 2020 Global Challenge asks teams of programmers, data scientists, designers, business analysts, subject matter experts and more to build solutions that significantly address climate change through solutions for energy and water sustainability and disaster resiliency. A second track was added for solutions to the social and business aspects of COVID-19 which include crisis communications, remote education, and community cooperation. Learn about this year's Call for Code Challenge (which has a top prize of $200K USD), be inspired by the 2018 and 2019 winners (Project OWL and Prometeo), and discover the new Code and Response™ with The Linux Foundation initiative which supports the most promising solutions.

An open and neutral place where individual contributors, projects, and companies can collaborate is a critical component for the next 25 years. Transparency builds understanding and trust. At the same time, the OpenJS governance model drives a clear focus on OpenJS projects, building a foundation for next-generation technology development.
It’s critical that dev leaders continually inspire and better their teams for continued innovation and excellence.
Mary Beth’s leadership on Blackbaud’s platform strategy, architecture modernization and culture shift has allowed for the evolution of Blackbaud’s technology from legacy on-premises and hosted applications to an agile development model with solutions implemented on Blackbaud SKY®, the company's platform for social good cloud innovation. Chris’ continued leadership now also allows for new critical features that help social good organizations better operate and fulfill their missions to be rolled out in a matter of days.
Mary Beth will share the keys to managing dev teams to increased innovation and success, including:
· Creating a “safe” environment for productive disagreement
· Giving teams problems to solve, not solutions to implement
· Creating an environment of autonomy, mastery and purpose
· Celebrating failing fast
· Pivoting quickly
· Translating direction from the C-suite in a way that sets teams up for success
She’ll also share the four biggest lessons learned along the way as a leader in Blackbaud’s transformation, including:
· The hard stuff isn’t the code. It’s the culture.
· Reiterate and stick to your principles.
· Be ready to fail.
· Code wasn’t our secret sauce.
