Today is the kick off of our distributed systems conference, RICON East! This two-day conference is taking over New World Stages and features a great line up of speakers ranging from academia to industry, talking about the theory, practice and importance of running distributed systems in production.

The opening keynote will be given by Dr. Margo Seltzer, whose talk, Automatically Scalable Computation, discusses the current limitations of distributed computation and, based off research being conducted at Harvard, offers one potential solution. You can also check out the full schedule of speakers here.

If you weren’t able to get tickets this year, don’t worry. You can watch all of the great talks via our live stream at

Also, if you’re going to be in San Francisco on October 29-30, there will be some exciting updates about RICON West coming soon.

See you at RICON!
