What we're about

CloudAustin is a community for Austin area technology 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 10 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!

Other Meetup Groups
Various other user groups will be joining us for this festive holiday celebration - if your local tech user group wants to just pile onto this instead of trying to schedule a meeting near the holidays are welcome to call this their official December meeting too, sure! Comment to the effect of "add in XX" below and then point your members to this invite! You can also post it on your own Meetup but please ask members to also RSVP here because this will have the correct meeting link when the time comes.
