The Northwest Tech Alliance (NWTA) mission is to help build a community for technology companies through tailored and segmented events. Our goal is to provide education and information relative to the latest technologies and industry trends that generate opportunities for personal, professional and business growth.

For the July 7, 2014 “Cloud Masterminds” event at the Synapse headquarters based out of Seattle, we aim to provide an evening of networking and an interactive panel discussion on Multicloud Management Strategies. Including the following:

A discussion giving I.T. leaders a better perspective in the following areas:

Requisite context-setting (viz., what is DevOps / what is trajectory for cloud in the enterprise)
The relationship between Cloud and DevOps (including CI/CD considerations)
Creating positive feedback loops between Cloud adoption and DevOps transformation efforts
How the “deployable” has changed over the years and the anticipated impact on Config Management / Automation systems.
What lessons should Ops learn from Dev? Dev from Ops?
We’ve got an all-star lineup featuring technologists from the companies responsible for building, managing and enabling cloud solutions.
