What we're about

CloudAustin ( is a community for practitioners interested in learning and sharing about their experiences with cloud computing, DevOps, containerization, and other cutting edge technology architecture and practice.

We've been around for over 7 years. Our meetings are open to all, and has a mix of developers, systems/ops/DevOps, other technical (security, QA), sales and marketing, and product development folks attending regularly.

We have monthly meetings (free admission and we try to get sponsors to buy food for us) on the third Tuesday evening of the month. We are always looking for volunteers to speak or demo at the meetings and for sponsors to buy the food.

Interested in speaking? Pitch a talk here! (
