Immelt sees 22,000 Predix programmers by the end of the year
Minds + Machines is a small event at a modest venue. Sounds echo from one end of the Herbst Pavilion to the other. It sits on a wood and concrete pier and was once the last stopping point for thousands of U.S. Army soldiers before they boarded ships to go deep into the Pacific to take back islands from the Japanese during WWII. But about a 1,000 people attended this year, GE's largest ever. Immelt said he expected 22,000 developers will be working on code to work with Predix and the Industrial Internet by the end of the year.
