Keynote: From Cloud to Fog Computing and the Internet of Things - Michael Enescu, CTO of Open Source Initiatives, Cisco
Just as we became familiar with Cloud computing and the dominant role of Open Source, a new compute model has emerged, an extension of the cloud to the edge of the network, some call it Fog computing, others the Internet of Everything. Linux will also play a dominant role in this, as it does in the Cloud, but what exactly is it, and what does it mean to the Internet of Things. How is the model changing as the new generation of devices has stretched what we previously knew as Cloud compute.

Keynote: Innovation in a 3D Printing Community - Anthony Moschella - Vice President of Product, MakerBot

The rise of Linux over the last two decades has been nothing short of a revolution. A small minority took an established technology and built a world-changing platform that has touched almost every industry on earth. Along the way, this new accessibility incubated powerful tools that created their own revolutions in turn. Thanks to Linux, the smartphone and set-top box have become mainstream faster than anyone thought possible, and devices like the RaspberryPi have inspired a new generation of creators.

3D printing is on the same path. A global community of hobbyists and entrepreneurs took the established technology of 3D printing and made it accessible. Now companies like MakerBot are building a rich ecosystem, using hardware, software, web tools and mobile applications to extend the world-changing capabilities of desktop 3D printing. Learn about MakerBot's vision for a collaborative, Linux-powered, application-driven platform that will drive the future of 3d printing.
