Designers and Devs are the New Software Architects

Designers and front end developers are becoming empowered to make important infrastructure decisions, as previously arcane tools and hard-to-run infrastructure like email, monitoring and databases become easy to use services. 

Join us Thursday June 12th, Anthony Falco, CEO of Orchestrate will be discussing how he’s seen development requirements shift over the years, new tools and opportunities for developers and designers to take control of their own servers and infrastructure, and what we need to know to make the most of them. He’ll also take a moment to introduce attendees to his own startup, Orchestrate.

    Is the slideshow available online? There was a great example list of services that was projected very briefly that I'd like to review.

    Thanks to Tony for another terrific presentation. That Marvelous DB site is pretty cool. But if anyone asks, I did not just spend 30 minutes of work time clicking around the site. Nope, not me.

    I'm coming from the vet. Would it be possible to bring a well behaved dog to the meeting and sit in the back?
