  • Cloud From Every Angle

    Location visible to members

    Come and spin the wheel to form the discussion! This Meetup is sure to keep the experts on their toes. We're bringing in a range of professionals from CRM specialists, to developers, to marketing and sales, and more, to talk about how they work in (and with) the cloud. Here's how it works: We're setting up a [digital] pinwheel. We have 6 different areas on this pinwheel that are up for the grabs of chance. They are... • Calling in the Cloud • Messaging in Cloud • Marketing in the Cloud • CRM in the Cloud • [You Name It] in the Cloud (Building your own apps) • "Is the weather looking cloud today?" (Audience choice to pick one that hasn't been discussed, or bring up a whole new topic) Depending on where the pinwheel lands, someone is getting up to speak, and depending on what the audience thinks of the topic once we get started, will determine how long that segment lasts. There's no doubt that this will be an interactive event, and you have to meet us at ContextMedia (https://www.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=330+N.+Wabash,+25th+Floor,+Chicago,+IL,+us) to see what direction this evening will take. You will be on your way home by eight, so please don't be late!
