"Let's all go cloud native!"

This meetup will be all about how to get started with some of the exciting new tech for developing amazing apps.

We'll kick off with a fantastic presentation:

"Getting the Cloud Business Ready"

Initially, cloud technologies were all about the infrastructure. But infrastructure is a funny thing because infrastructure becomes a commodity. This is why we’re at the edge of Cloud hitting its peak -- and its first best use -- via the platform layer. Abby Kearns will discuss the future of cloud technologies, what drives enterprises to adopt these technologies in droves, and which development languages matter now, more than ever, and why.

Speaker: Abby Kearns, Executive Director, Cloud Foundry Foundation
