How and Why We Deploy to 50 Servers 7 Times a Day
Limited Capacity seats available

Crowdskout is a 3 year old engineering team that adopted continuous integration early on. Now with 15 engineers we deploy six code bases across 50 servers an average of seven times a day. We want to share how we accomplish this on AWS and Hivelocity hardware using tools like Ansible and Jenkins. And more importantly, why we practice CI, how it's become a cornerstone of Crowdskout's engineering culture, and the product ownership it instills.

Mixed Reality with HoloLens
Limited Capacity filling up

Discover a new world of mixed reality with Microsoft HoloLens, the world’s first enterprise-ready standalone headset computer that allows you to interact with virtual objects in the real world. The transparent visor allows a user to walk around freely while using visual gaze, hand gestures, and voice commands. Learn about how your startup can benefit from this emerging technology that includes built-in spatial sound, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a custom holographic chip.
HoloLens actually uses a technology called “Mixed Reality” which allows a user to place virtual objects in the real world while recognizing and interacting with real-world objects. As a result, it goes beyond traditional “Virtual Reality” which is restricted to a virtual world only. The speaker would be happy to schedule follow-up office hours with anyone who wants to try it out at a later time.
