Opening keynote by Stevon Cook:

Stevon Cook is a fourth generation San Franciscan and graduate of public schools. He attended Williams College in Massachusetts where he majored in American Studies and got involved in various entrepreneurial and social impact ventures. After graduating, he returned to San Francisco where he's worked in education, politics and business.

Currently, Stevon serves as President of the San Francisco Board of Education. He was elected to the Board of Education in November 2016 with over 150,000 votes. For over four years, he served as the Chief Executive Officer of Mission Bit, an education nonprofit focus on ending generational poverty through coding education. These days Stevon does consulting work for nonprofits and corporations focused on growth, leadership development, diversity in hiring and policy work.


Closing keynote by Monica Dinculescu:

Monica works on Magenta, in Google Brain, where she makes generative music and art with Machine Learning. In the past she's worked on Polymer, web components, and Chrome, and has probably at least once broken the Internet for you. She is unreasonably excited about emoji, wary of web fonts, and will become your best friend if you bring her cheese. On second thought, she may be a mouse.
