In case your attendance at Oktane16 isn’t yet “confirmed,” co-host and executive producer of MythBusters Adam Savage has a special message for you. Adam will join us as a guest keynote speaker to talk about his personal experiences at the intersection of technology and the arts, including favorite MythBusters memories and a lively audience discussion.

Adam has worn many creative hats—he’s worked as a special effects artist, fabricator, and modelmaker. He’s had a hand in films such as Galaxy Quest and the Matrix sequels, as well as the Star Wars series. For 14 seasons of MythBusters, Adam sparked an interest in science education by exploring pop culture myths.

Adam will be on the main stage on Wednesday, August 31 to close our Oktane16 and discuss how his fascination with science propelled him into a world of creative technology. Get a sneak peek: 

There is still time to “confirm” your attendance and join us, Adam, Rainn Wilson, Brian Krebs and Malcolm Gladwell at Oktane16. In addition to our guest keynotes, we’ll have 40+ sessions featuring Okta experts, hours of hands-on labs, pre-conference trainings and two memorable parties.
