About this event

Atlassian Open DevOPS:

At its core, DevOps requires a cultural shift: development and operations teams must recognize their shared commitment to delivering quality software, and embrace transparency, communication, and collaboration. Underlying the cultural shift are practices—processes and behaviors people can adopt to build software better—and tooling—software or automation that can make these practices easier.

But every development team is different—they have different needs and use different tools. Adding to the complexity is that development tools are evolving at breakneck speed. In their quest to use best-of-breed tools, different teams adopt different tools, silos develop, communication breaks down—pretty much the opposite of what DevOps is intended to achieve. So, to meet the need, Atlassian introduced Open DevOps, a development experience built on Jira that integrates with a ton of third-party tools, but makes the whole thing seem like one experience.


Building scalable applications and hosting them in the cloud has been a challenge, especially for young startups and organizations that still use traditional software development methodologies.

OneAPI is an industry open standard-based programming model that delivers a common developer experience across accelerator architectures for faster application performance, more productivity, and greater innovation

In this session attendees will learn :

  • Introduction Cross Architecture programming - Accelerators for AI, Data Science, and IoT
  • Basics of Data parallel C++ and programming.
  • Running parallel Tasks on Dev Cloud, Scheduling Tasks in the cloud, and performance analysis
  • Tools and innovations
  • Intel Dev cloud, opportunities
  • Setting up a Jupyter notebook instance for data-parallel programming
  • Opportunities in Government, Security, Industry, and Education - Wonderful gets done
  • program.

Giveaways: Attendees to get Intel dev cloud access with hand on sessions on how to run parallel tasks
