Keynote: Apache Kafka and the Rise of the Streaming Platform - Neha Narkhede, Co-Founder & CTO, Confluent
Streaming platforms are emerging as a new trend. However, what exactly is a streaming platform? With Apache Kafka at the core, it’s an entirely new perspective on managing the flow of data. Part messaging system, part Hadoop made fast, part fast ETL and scalable data integration, a streaming platform is a new way to stream, store and process data across the business. In this keynote, Neha will share examples of Kafka in action and why Kafka is becoming a central nervous system that ties together the modern, digital business.

Keynote: Hacking is Child’s Play, Literally! - Reuben Paul, 11 Year Old Hacker, CyberShaolin Founder and Cyber Security Ambassador
IoT is a buzz word but what does that mean? Internet of Things or Internet of Toys or Internet of Threats. In this keynote, 11 year old, Reuben Paul aka The Cyber Ninja would discuss and demonstrate how smart things (or toys) does not necessarily mean secure things. 

He will share his experience, playing with and hacking toys and cover tools (sniffers, packet analyzers, Raspberry Pi, python scripts) that could make connected systems creepy. With demonstration, he will highlight the insecurities in smart technologies and discuss the application of these technologies in the real world (drones, autonomous cars, etc.), and share why it is important to understand these threats that can not only impact things in a game room, but real things that we use daily as well.

Come for a fun-filled, entertaining, and educational talk to find out how the hacking game is not limited just to the game room, and learn about why Hacking is Child’s play, literally!

Keynote: Governance and Trust -- from Company Led to Community Led - Sarah Novotny, Head of Open Source Strategy, Google Cloud Platform

Kubernetes is a success in part because of Google's commitment to making it a community led project.  It has taken 2 years and we have learned a lot from challenges of self organization, implicit governance, and the human condition. As an open source community committed to learning from our failures and asking hard questions we continue to iterate on our governance model.  Learn from our experiences. The future is bright.
