First, a huge thank you to the cloud development community for the outstanding sessions submitted! All those who submitted an abstract have been notified and confirmations are coming in. Our selection process is completely anonymous for the first round, where we vote on the top overall session submissions. Then we went through a more difficult round of making sure things make sense (like we don’t have the same person presenting multiple times on the same topic, for example) and ensure that we have the desired spread of topics to make the conference work.
This year we received 58 submissions, of which we chose 24. Compared to some conferences, that may not seem a high number, but Cloud Develop is a focused specialty conference. The passionate cloud development community in the region did not make the selection process easy on us – and we are grateful!
We have begun to update the CloudDevelop.org site with the speaker/session information as we receive confirmation. Check back regularly if you are interested in seeing what we have in store; we are confident you’ll find something that piques your interest.
Now that we have the sessions selected, we anticipate ticket sales opening on Friday, July 24th. Yes, there will be an early bird discount too. Exciting!!
