Is your head full of ideas and questions about containers, microservices, serverless architectures, machine learning and APIs? Or do you just want to know the latest trends in cloud technology?

If so, we’ve got a can’t-miss conference just for you.

We’re excited to launch our first-ever technical conference — the GeekWire Cloud Tech Summit. Taking place June 7 at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, Wash., the Cloud Tech Summit will bring together top technical minds to discuss the future of computing.

Early-bird tickets are on sale now, so make sure to grab yours here today.

We’ve been working hard to deliver a line-up of great speakers and presenters who will be able to offer tips and tricks and address your most pressing technical questions, while at the same time sharing insights about big trends that will impact the technology industry in the next three to five years. We’re also excited to host a world-class conference of this kind in the Seattle area, which we consider the epicenter of the cloud industry.

The Cloud Tech Summit will kick off with a fireside chat with Microsoft’s Scott Guthrie, one of the key figures in the industry as the executive vice president of the tech giant’s Cloud and Enterprise Group, including the Azure cloud platform.

Others on the agenda include Abby Kearns, executive director of the Cloud Foundry Foundation; Avi Cavale, the CEO of Shippable; and journalist Barb Darrow, who covers cloud computing as a senior writer for Fortune.

Kubernetes co-creator and Heptio CTO Joe Beda will lead a technical session where he’ll discuss how the new world of “cloud native” will redefine how IT operations and dev teams operate. Meanwhile, Algorithmia co-founder and CEO Diego Oppenheimer will talk about “The Operating System for AI,” discussing how microservices and serverless computing will enable the next generation of machine intelligence.

That’s just a small portion of the agenda. We’ll have more announcements about speakers, technical tracks, networking parties and other aspects of the GeekWire Cloud Tech Summit in the coming weeks. We’re excited to bring together leaders from across the industry for this inaugural event.

GeekWire’s Cloud Tech Summit is a developer-oriented conference geared to those who love to code and solve big problems. We’ll offer technical tracks throughout the afternoon, providing deep dives into areas such as DevOps; artificial intelligence/machine learning; and other areas.

It’s also an event for business leaders. We’ll be discussing the business of the cloud with top venture capitalists, business leaders and entrepreneurs who’ll share insights on where they think the cloud computing business is headed.

Right now, we’re offering a special early-bird rate of $349, so make sure to visit the registration page to sign up, or purchase your tickets below. We hope you can join us for this one-of-a-kind event in the cloud capital of the world!
