First glances at the Global Summit 2024

Hi Community!

It's that time of year again—the time of the Global Summit! All the Developer Ecosystem teams, in general, and the Developer Community team, in particular, are doing their best to bring even more new, interesting people into our midst! 

We had this beautiful booth ready on Sunday to welcome everyone when the Summit officially started:

As you can see, we have quite a selection of goodies waiting to be claimed by our existing and new members 😉 So if you're attending the Global Summit, don't hesitate to come by and get a pin, a T-Shirt, a sticker or something else - we're always happy to welcome people.

Before the Summit, there were several workshops and I decided to participate in one of them - Crafting a Generative AI "Chat with your documents" led by @Don Woodlock, @Nicholai Mitchko and @Thomas Dyar.

It was an exciting analytical geometry lesson, among other things:

After the workshop, there was an interesting (and a bit misnamed) session, Women's Meetup - Stay and Thrive. Good thing there were also men who were interested in listening about inclusiveness and support.

In the evening, there was an incredible Welcome Reception for people to renew their acquaintances, chat with old friends, and make new ones!

Today has been absolutely fantastic, and it started with the Developer Community bosses getting together to talk shop before the opening (@Irène Mykhailova, @Dean Andrews, @Anastasia Dyubaylo) 😁

After the keynotes that were dedicated to AI and launched by Terry Ragon

the constant stream of people kept us busy

@Irène Mykhailova, @Guillaume Rongier, @Anastasia Dyubaylo, @Claudio Devecchi, @Daniel Franco, @Amir Samary 

@Irène Mykhailova, @José Pereira, @Guillaume Rongier, @Dmitry Maslennikov, @Anastasia Dyubaylo, @Enrico Parisi, @Olga Zavrazhnova 

And even some people used our warm and inviting environment to discuss serious issues (@Eduard Lebedyuk, @Guillaume Rongier)

The winners of the latest programming competition dedicated to AI and Vector Search @José Pereira and @Muhammad Waseem presented their solutions across from our booth

One of the highlights of this day was our triumphant session "Leveraging Developer Ecosystem Tools for Success" led by @Dean Andrews. The room was packed, and the energy was palpable!

During this session, we had a Kahoot! game going, and people with the best knowledge of the Developer Ecosystem have won the prizes

@Dean Andrews, @Anastasia Dyubaylo, @Ben Spead, @Raj Singh, @Felipe Araújo, @David Reche

After a full day of sessions and discussions, what better way to unwind than at Demos & Drinks? It was the perfect combination of inspiring tech demos and socializing over a drink. We witnessed some innovative and impressive demonstrations while enjoying the company of colleagues and friends. Laughter echoed, ideas were exchanged, and we all savored the relaxed and festive atmosphere.

This is it so far! Thank you to everyone who made this day unforgettable. Stay tuned for more adventures and discoveries at the Global Summit!

Don't forget to watch the online broadcast tomorrow and share this incredible experience with us. 

See you soon!
