Director, Developer Relations

Microsoft has one. Amazon has one. It turns out there are a lot of different developer-focused cloud environments out there, though. Sometimes, it may be exactly what you need to get your project going quickly—assuming you know it exists. This session will survey the variety of different cloud providers, many with wildly varying different approaches to "what developers need," and give you a series of ideas to explore the next time the boss says, "We need to move into the cloud!"

You will learn:

  • An overview of Azure and AWS
  • Offerings from other environments
  • About how working with multiple cloud providers can be both a good and a bad thing
