**What to Expect to Get Out of the Session**
You will:
1. Leave with an understanding of the value of the Clear Linux OS to the industry (performance, security, customization, and manageability)
2. Learn how to use the Clear Linux OS as your main workstation and delivery software
3. Receive a non-technical introduction to features and their benefits

**Proposed agenda (subject to change)**

3:00 Check in, refreshments, networking

3:30 Clear Linux Project Overview – Auke Kok
Auke will discuss Clear Linux OS at a high-level touching on the history of Clear Linux, the four primary pillars it was founded on and what it offers to community.

Bio: Auke's focus areas are boot time and systemd, having worked extensively in the past to change the way that Linux boots and prove that the limits of the hardware are much higher than you think they are. Aside that Auke enjoys making the OS useful to everyone, in the hope that everyone gets what they need.

3:45 Clear Linux OS Architecture – Arzhan Kinzhalin

4:45 Demo 1: swupd - Otavio Pontes
How swupd changed the way he tests the libraries he’s developing. A simple demo on how swupd recovery capabilities let him be free to ruin (and recover) his system.

Bio: Otavio is the maintainer of swupd, the Clear Linux update tool and is an Open Source enthusiast since he first heard about it. He loves traveling by bike, but he plans more trips than he actually does.

5:15 Demo 2: Fusion Edge Stack using Clear Linux OS – Beth Dean
Beth will demo Function as a Service (FaaS) on Clear Linux with the Azure Edge runtime, leveraging the Intel OpenVINO software stack to execute machine learning inference on video streams to detect objects.

Bio: Beth has been a software engineer at Intel for the past 14 years. She is currently working as a Technical Marketing Engineer in the Systems Software Products group, focusing on Clear Linux and Software Stacks. Fun fact: most of her immediate family have been seasonal workers at Yellowstone National Park, herself included.

5:45 Dinner Break
