Cloud engineering leader Pulumi today announced the full lineup of speakers for the first annual Cloud Engineering Summit, slated to take place online on October 7 – 8, 2020. Abby Kearns, CTO of Puppet, Charity Majors, CTO and co-founder of Honeycomb, and Yevgeniy (Jim) Brikman, co-founder of Gruntwork join an agenda packed with luminaries in the cloud infrastructure space. Previously-announced speakers include Adam Jacob of The System Initiative, Jonathan Sullivan of NS1, GitHub’s Jason Warner, Corey Scobie of Chef, DigitalOcean’s Al Sene, and Joe Beda of VMware. This virtual event highlights the growing role of cloud-native technologies in modern organizations and provides a forum for top cloud industry experts to share best practices with developers and infrastructure teams looking to deliver innovative solutions.
“In the new cloud era, all applications are cloud applications, all developers are cloud developers, and infrastructure teams hold the keys to unlocking organization-wide collaboration,” said Joe Duffy, founder and CEO of Pulumi. “Industry leaders are adopting Cloud Engineering—a new approach to cloud native architectures, workflows, and teams—to disrupt and innovate faster than ever before. We’re excited to bring together this growing community to learn from cloud engineering leaders and practitioners about how they are building products and technologies that fully leverage what the modern cloud has to offer.”
The 2020 Cloud Engineering Summit spotlights the way modern IT and DevOps teams are taking advantage of cloud environments to innovate faster in periods of market uncertainty and disruption. The summit provides an opportunity to hear from experts building solutions to some of the biggest problems in enterprise IT. Attendees will be able to see sessions that explore topics such as cloud native architectures, modern cloud infrastructure platforms, the evolution of DevOps, how infrastructure and application development teams can work together, site-reliability engineering and security and policy.
