Open Source Summit is the leading conference for developers, DevOps professionals, architects and other technologists – along with open source community and industry leaders – to collaborate, share information, learn about the latest technologies and gain a competitive advantage by using innovative open solutions. The event covers cornerstone open source technologies like Linux and Kubernetes, along with other cloud infrastructure and cloud native applications, AI, blockchain, networking and more.

Stone Door Group’s Founding Partner, Darren Hoch explains, “We are delighted to be participating in Open Source Summit, which is the leading conference for developers, DevOps professionals, and architects. We are thought leaders in helping companies collaborate, share information and gain a competitive advantage by using innovative open solutions.”

According to a recent Forrester Research report, open source now comprises 80% – 90% of the code in a typical application. Open source software has proven itself to be innovative and agile and able to meet industry needs as requirements arise, and today has established itself as the go-to-technology approach for building new products.

Mr. Hoch adds, “We expect that almost all new innovations going forward will be based on open source software.”

In all, the Summit will feature more than 300 sessions, lightning talks, tutorials, workshops, labs and a host of co-located events. Topics will revolve around artificial intelligence, Kubernetes, DevOps, challenges of containers, cyber security and tools for building an open source community.
