What you'll learn

  • Learn AWS participates in open source


Adrian Cockcroft details the many ways AWS participates in open source: contributing to open source projects, reporting bugs, contributing fixes and enhancements to a wide spectrum of projects ranging from the Linux kernel to PostgreSQL and Kubernetes, and managing the hundreds of projects of its own, including the security library s2n and machine learning projects like Apache MXNet, Gluon, and ONNX. Join in to learn how AWS collaborates with the open source community and hear best practices aimed at global developers new to open source.

This session is sponsored by AWS.
