About DevNet Create

Who should Attend

IoT, cloud and enterprise developers, DevOps engineers

What is DevNet Create

Through cloud, IoT and new developer platforms and tools, developers are creating enterprise apps for the future. 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.

Held in San Francisco, CA, May 23-24, the two-day conference, DevNet Create, was built to bring clarity to the blurred lines between infrastructure and applications. Through two session tracks, networking, keynotes, workshops, mini-hacks and learning labs, the conference offers top notch content combined with hands-on learning, to break down the barriers between infrastructure and applications and help developers learn, code, inspire, and connect.

Why Attend

  1. The only conference for IoT and cloud developers that joins the forces of infrastructure and app development to inspire and define the art of the possible.
  2. Hands-on learning matched with cross-vertical and cross-platform speakers present the whole enchilada of developer tools and options.
  3. An intimate setting to connect with peers and meet leaders in the world of infrastructure and applications.

Track 1: IoT & User Experience

We’ve all heard about IoT. Today, apps are sensing and actuating everything from home appliances to heavy machinery, from security systems, to autonomous vehicles. IoT is spreading quickly from residential to manufacturing, from the enterprise to the roadways. But with apps now connecting people, places, things and business, some important questions remain. How do you secure your IoT apps? How do IoT and Edge Computing work together across verticals? How does IoT integrate into Enterprise workflows and communications? Come see what others are building through real demos and examples of securing IoT apps, new protocols/standards, and open source projects that are defining the IoT landscape. Topics covered include:

Where Apps meet Things

  • IoT security, protocols, standards and interoperability
  • Fog / Edge Computing

  • How to gather Business Metrics in a multi-channel world

Track 2: Cloud & DevOps

DevOps, hybrid, containers, microservices—Oh my! There are buzz words aplenty in the world of cloud. Running your cloud native apps can be complex. Balancing a combination of public and private cloud and services. APIs must be created to make the most of these multi-cloud environments, reducing automation complexity and providing cloud abstraction. Add in that apps are now being written as microservices and you have a new world order of how apps are being designed, deployed, managed and operated.
This track covers the new world of the modern developer, with sessions curated into an easy to follow lifecycle of build, package, test, deploy, improve. We’ll be covering all the tools and techniques so you can stay on top of the ever-evolving world of cloud development, understand how DevOps adoption can positively impact your project timelines, and see how proactive monitoring can directly improve business outcomes. Topics in this track include:
