GenAI is exciting but fraught with challenges. Let's work together to understand what is needed to bring GenAI into our orgs and make the most out of this once in a generation opportunity.

The goal of this DevOps for GenAI Hackathon is for DevOps professionals and Platform engineers to learn what problems their peers are facing when trying to use and deploy Generative AI solutions, and to collaborate together to come up with ideas, best practices and even open source solutions that they can use in their own environment. Examples of problems include keeping training data and models secure, enabling data and model deployment within the constraints of corporate data governance, preventing or reducing the effects of hallucinations, and developing new tools and techniques to face these new challenges. 

The event will begin with John Willis, co-author of The DevOps Handbook, and other participants sharing their GenAI-related challenges with the group, followed by proposals by participants for specific solutions (ideas, best practices or technical solutions) that can be worked on at the event, and ending in presentations of solutions by participants. 

If you work for a company that wants to move fast but carefully so as NOT to break things, then this is the event for you. We hope to see you there!

Spots are limited, and you must registered to join AND be approved to attend. Apply now!
