12:45 PM Sunday Room: Fireside BLike superintelligence, practical quantum computing appears to be half a decade away... every half decade. In this session, we'll take a look at the basic principles behind quantum computing, the whys behind its potential, as well as the history of breakthroughs and developments in that space. We'll make a lengthy detour into programming quantum computer emulators with Visual Studio, Q# and Azure. We'll finish up by looking at the most promising pathways for making quantum computing practical and review whether it can indeed render all current encryption schemes obsolete and become the quickest path towards superintelligence.
9:15 AM Sunday Room: Town Square BWe have all heard for a while that microservices are the solution to all of our problems. Now serverless is emerging as an even smaller component of the new way of building applications piece by piece. In our zeal to adopt the latest in architectural approaches, have we given sufficient thought to where they are going or what comes next?
If you are considering building an application with a microservice or serverless based architecture, come to this panel of experienced cloud developers and architects and learn what these technologies can do for you now, and what they will do in the future. Ask our panel questions on what works, what doesn't, and how to prepare today for the technology that's coming next.
