DevNet Create 2017 – more than just another developer conference

When is a developer conference more than just another vendor and developer conference? When the leading technologies including cloud, Internet of Things, devices, platforms, frameworks and architectures are combined with the ingenuity of developers in one location for a couple of days, the result is a creative explosion, a coming together of minds and machines. There are many developer conferences through the calendar year. There are numerous weekend hackathons, maker fairs, meetups and developer gatherings. Blooming this Spring in San Francisco on May 23 and 24, is DevNet Create: The IoT and cloud developer conference where applications meet infrastructure. I can only say one thing: Developer Relations Professionals and Developers – Be There or Be Trapezoidal!

DevNet Create: Where Applications meet People, Places, Things, the Cloud, and Business

From the conference page: “Join the brightest of the IoT, cloud and enterprise developers to bring clarity to the blurred lines between infrastructure and applications. Enterprise app developers are driving the future of business through cloud, IoT and new developer platforms and tools trends. These apps aren’t just for business—they affect everything—people, places, and things. They are built on a programmable infrastructure connected through APIs and DevOps practices, making the relationship between infrastructure and apps symbiotic.”
