Speaker: Jim Zemlin

Jim Zemlin is Executive Director of the Linux Foundation. In this role, he has helped industries navigate transitions from proprietary software to a world in which almost all infrastructure technology is built collaboratively with open source. Zemlin’s work has helped create industry support for open source software, from the Core Infrastructure Initiative, which supports projects critical to cybersecurity, and Let’s Encrypt to transformative projects such as Hyperledger, the open source blockchain project working to provide distributed trust online.
