Cloud based technologies are all the rage in the current tech community which is why we have decided to host a debate to answer the ongoing question of “Which cloud based system is “best?”

This event will feature cloud-based developers that have used Azure and variety of open source cloud services and will be held in a debate-style. The purpose of the event is to help developers and those simply interested in cloud based technologies understand the "what," "how," and "why" of choosing a cloud based service. By the end of the night attendees will have a clear understanding of the cloud based services out there and best of all they'll be learning from others who have learned from first-hand experience.
