Alphabet’s Ruth Porat and Intel’s Brian Krzanich are coming to Code

A big lineup gets bigger.

Peter Kafka covers media and technology, and their intersection, at Vox. Many of his stories can be found in his Kafka on Media newsletter, and he also hosts the Recode Media podcast.

Every year, the Code Conference attracts some of the most powerful and compelling executives in the world.

This year’s lineup, for instance, features Uber’s Travis Kalanick, Netflix’s Reed Hastings, Kleiner Perkins’ Mary Meeker, Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards, Time Warner’s Jeff Bewkes and Andreessen Horowitz’s Marc Andreessen, Greylock’s Reid Hoffman, CBS + Viacom’s Shari Redstone and the LA Clippers’ (!) Steve Ballmer.

Good list, right? But we’re not done. Here are two more excellent speakers joining us soon:

Ruth Porat joined Alphabet as its CFO after a long Wall Street career. Now she has a crucial role as the search giant decides which ambitious, world-changing bets it wants to pursue — and which ones to fold.

Brian Krzanich took the Intel CEO job four years ago, and since then he’s being trying to make up ground that the chip giant lost when it missed the mobile wave. His newest effort: A $15 billion investment in the growing car business.

Like every other Code speaker, Porat and Krzanich have signed on for our trademark red-chair interviews: On the record, unfiltered conversations about their companies, their industries and the world around them.

You want more? Okay, we’ll give you more. Stay tuned. But in the meantime: Code 2017 is returning to the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., from May 30 to June 1. You can read all the details here.
