The existing cloud conferences are, for the most part, pretty biased (self-serving) events where content is caged within the context of the host cloud. This is why we decided to create ESCAPE/19 - The Multi-Cloud Conference.
ESCAPE/19 will gather practitioners and technologists in NYC on Oct. 16th/17th, to have an open and independent conversation about the cloud and multi-cloud outside the context of the large public cloud providers. This is not a show about databases in the cloud, rather a more broad event to talk about the technical and business issues we’ll face with our cloud investments.
We've built a promo code for those who find us in this community. Just use SOCIAL40 when you buy your ticket to get 40% off.
Please let me know if you have any questions & check out some of the speakers. Full Agenda is here https://escapeconference.io/schedule/
