SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Register for ESCAPE/19!
On October 16-17 in NYC, the ESCAPE/19 conference will gather practitioners and technologists to have an open and independent conversation about the cloud and multi-cloud outside the context of the large public cloud providers. Speakers include leaders from Adobe, GitLab, RIot Games, Docker, Google, Lyft, and many more.
While FirstMark-backed Cockroach Labs is the host of ESCAPE/19, this is not a show solely about databases in the cloud, rather a more broad event to talk about the technical and business issues we all face with our public cloud investments. You can also view the near-final agenda and purchase tickets at the conference site: escapeconference.io/
