Earlier this year, David Kenny, from IBM Watson, took to the SDC Keynote stage to share how they’ve been working to help people better understand machine, and help machines better understand us. They’re not thinking about technology, but with it. Their APKs take data patterns and turn them into algorithms allowing developers to take those algorithms and turn them into life-changing experiences. Watson developers have created really great experiences – just look back at the TechCrunch Disrupt hackathon winners.
Watson Developer Conference
Next week, at Watson Developer Conference, hundreds of developers will join industry leading experts like Uber, Slack, Cyber Code Twins and Omni Earth, to talk about best practices in machine learning and cognitive methodology to create knowledge from both internal and external data. This is a MUST ATTEND event for anyone interested in AI. Don’t worry if you’re concerned about getting the time off. Watson has drafted a letter for you to use to help convince your boss.
Here’s the info you’ll need to know:
- November 9-10

Workshops, Competitions and Certifications
In addition to the amazing speaker line up, this two day event has content for every level of developer. For anyone who may be newer to the Watson world, there are six open, hands-on, workshops that dig deeper into the code to help you learn the basics of Watson from the ground up.
More advanced devs may be interested in signing up for one of the on-site competitions during the conference. From bot vs bot to the $5 million XPRIZE competition, you’ll undoubtedly go home with new skills and inspiration.
For those of you who have mastered your AI skills, and are looking to take your content to the next level, Watson is offering an event-exclusive offer for their certification program. As a certified Watson developer, you’ll be identified as an active player in this rapidly changing space.
We are so pumped to be involved in this event, and we can’t wait to see what you build with Watson technology. See you there.
