Program Features - What happens when you bring together the world's top AI Engineers?

A collective output as groundbreaking as the technologies upon which we meet, driven by end-to-end program curation and network facilitation:

  • Stage talks. We've hand-selected a group of engineers & founders who are leading this exciting new chapter in AI-enhanced & AI-native software engineering, products, & companies. Our careful curation is meant to ensure that you will be both informed and excited about returning to your office to implement the future, today.
  • Hands-on, in-depth workshops. We've assembled a team of top engineers who build with the technologies they're teaching every day. From core-contributors and maintainers to senior engineers and founders, you'll learn in hours what they've have mastered over years.
  • Sponsors leading their industry categories. We've invited many of the best and most exciting companies who are pushing the boundaries in support of the fast-emerging AI Engineer category. Staffed by senior engineers & founders, each booth will provide you with insight and new capabilities to improve both your developer stack and your end-user experience.
  • Ad-hoc breakout sessions. Need a whiteboard to workshop with your peers? Want to connect to a monitor to present something you've been working on? Enjoy breakout space dedicated for workshopping or presenting ideas and projects, and plenty of quieter space for more intimate meetings.
  • Unrivaled networking & connections. We are curating attendance to ensure that every conversation you have is better than the last. Every attendee will be senior engineers or above who are actively working with or experimenting with AI technologies to enhance their software development and development output.
