Fireside Chat with Martin Casado

Wed, 19, Jun. 2024

Instead of our usual keynote, for 0x18 we are honored to have Martin Casado as our guest in a fireside chat.

In a previous life Martin co-founded Nicira, the originator of the kernel’s openvswitch which was acquired by VMware in 2012. Based on his work at Stanford he helped create the software-defined networking (SDN) movement, leading to a new paradigm of network virtualization.

As a general partner at Andreessen Horowitz Martin leads the firm’s $1.25 billion infrastructure practice. Martin is very passionate about AI/ML generally and a good part of his investment portfolio focuses on that space. For this reason, it is only natural that at the fireside chat we engage him on AI/ML with some focus on the networking industry, Linux and the role of open source in general. The subject of discussion is wide - ranging from the effects in the industry, the challenges in regulations, misconception or reality or not of displacements, opportunities, etc.

We will be announcing in the near future the format of the fireside chat. See the schedule and set your calendar, and dont forget to get the popcorn on your way to the session!
