CloudCamp Chicago - Developer Night
Thursday, July 24, 2014 at 5:30 PM (CDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Developers are the new kingmakers, according to Stephen O'Grady. Developers are showing more influence over IT decisions, techonologies and strategy rather than their employers. So how are developers influencing the cloud? Is the cloud influencing developers?
This CloudCamp is all about the developers. As always, the unconference is vendor-neutral. As a community, we hope to create a fun and open environment to educate and discuss cloud computing.
We keep vendor sales pitches to a minimum by giving the audience 'red cards' - if you don't like what the speakers are saying send them off!

When & Where
CloudCamp is an 'unconference' where networking, dev/ops, IT pros and cloud users gather to discuss cloud technologies over pizzas and beers.
CloudCamp is a common ground to learn and share cloud computing knowledge. Attendees are encouraged to share thoughts in open discussions, un-panels, Q&A, and short talks. We keep vendor sales pitches to a minimum by giving the audience 'red cards' - if you don't like what the speakers are saying send them off!
CloudCamp regulars include networking, dev/ops, IT pros and cloud users from VMware, user groups, IBM, CDW, startups, Salesforce, local universities, and myriad smaller Cloud users and enthusiasts. www.cloudcamp.org
