Things kick off at 8:30AM Pacific Time on Wednesday with an introductory discussion led by Paul Nashawaty to set the stage for the entire event. Then we’re live with Google Cloud at 10AM Pacific. You might have heard about Google Cloud run at Google IO and we’re going to get an update on that followed by a deeper discussion about building generative AI applications on cloud run, including retrieval augmented generation or RAG.

After lunch we’re going to be welcoming Mezmo back to the Tech Field Day stage at 1PM Pacific. Mezmo specializes in Telemetry data and will demonstrate how DevOps and security teams are building data pipelines to optimize observability. We’ve got more surprises coming Wednesday afternoon as well.
