Capitalizing on the 60K+ techies expected in town for AWS re:Invent, IFX2019 offers a unique opportunity to connect with the builders who are creating tomorrow’s technologies and forging new kinds of partnerships. Two days of immersive programming inspired by the intersection of hardware, networks and software will be paired with an atmosphere that encourages creative inspiration, outstanding networking and a chance to celebrate the craft and culture of infrastructure.
IFX2019 will feature programming curated by peers from throughout the ecosystem. Eight streams — encompassing keynotes as well as hands-on workshops — will open the door to new ideas and conversations between developers, hardware innovators, entrepreneurs, investors, and open-source enthusiasts alike.
Building on our success in 2018, IFX2019 is more than just a conference focusing on the new frontiers of hardware, cloud strategies, and edge computing. We believe that true innovation is best incubated in thought-provoking environments, and we’ve designed IFX2019 as a free-form experience that encourages cross-pollination and serendipitous encounters.
Designed as an exclusive, intimate hub for hardware enthusiasts, developers, builders, and tinkerers, IFX2019 will combine networking, exploration, and socializing in the heart of hip, historic Downtown Las Vegas. The event will take place over two days in December in a transformed parking lot on the corner of 8th Street between Carson and Fremont – just a short Uber ride away from the Strip, yet still in the thick of the action.
Occurring on a custom-built, completely handmade staging site, IFX2019 will serve as an urban oasis with community commons areas for socializing, exclusive, separate staging for featured keynotes and content curators, a unique makerspace, and conferencing areas reserved for small groups and one-on-ones.
Techies in attendance can expect to be inspired through an engaging mix of programming and hands-on activities – from formal technical talks to ad-hoc technology demos to tech celebrity “thought-leader” sessions to immersive social experiences.
Offering a flexible programming schedule, IFX2019 will also offer ample opportunities to explore nearby Downtown Las Vegas hotspots. These include Container Park and the Fremont Street Experience, where dozens of restaurants ranging from casual burger joints to upscale eateries beckon, as well as cool cocktail bars, old-school casinos and must-see attractions like the famous Mob Museum.
