Keynote: Forging New Frontiers In Search
AWS has long been on the vanguard of bringing open source to everyone. By making popular open source technologies easy to run, predictably, reliably, scalable and cost effectively, Amazon unleashed a legion of developers from the shackles of proprietary, expensive enterprise software and freed them up to create, innovate and change the world. Though Amazon has traditionally contributed to open source in a variety of areas, it has been less open about what it has done. With Open Distro, AWS is forging a new frontier by actively cultivating a new community to build and contribute to innovation in the open source search stack which brings the best of AWS scale combined with openness of Apache.
In his keynote, Arun Gupta, Principal Open Source Technologist at AWS will talk about Amazon’s commitment to open source, its involvement in a variety of projects, how it plans to grow Open Distro and what that means for developers worldwide.
