Apple’s operations whiz Jeff Williams will be a speaker at the second Code Conference, held May 26 to 28.

The conference represents a rare opportunity to hear from the man who oversaw the development of the Apple Watch, as well as helping Apple progress from shipping 10 million iPhones in 2008 to more than 74 million in the last three months of 2014 alone.

Other speakers set to appear include include General Motors CEO Mary Barra, Pivotal CEO Paul Maritz, Xiaomi’s international head Hugo Barra, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure, Reddit interim CEO Ellen Pao and BuzzFeed’s CEO Jonah Peretti and Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith.

The Code Conference is the successor to the All Things Digital Conference, which Steve Jobs and Tim Cook have both appeared at in the past.
