The 2019 GeekWire Cloud Summit is a fantastic opportunity to learn from industry leaders and technical experts shaping the future of cloud computing, and it’s also a great value.

Early-bird pricing ends Tuesday May 7th for the June 5th event in Bellevue, and now is a great time to make sure you’ll have a seat. More than 600 people attended last year’s event, and this year we’re thrilled to host great speakers such as Microsoft CTO Kevin Scott, Mai-Lan Tomsen Bukovec, head of Amazon Web Services’ pioneering S3 cloud storage service, and Cal Henderson, co-founder and CTO of Slack.

You’ll get a chance to hone your technical skills during three tracks covering some of the most important issues in the cloud today, including artificial intelligence, DevOps, and cloud migration. And we’ll have a special treat to close out the day, with the three creators of Kubernetes —Joe Beda, Brendan Burns, and Craig McLuckie — taking us down memory lane on the fifth anniversary of the important container-orchestration project and sharing their unique insights on what’s coming next.

Tickets are on sale for the GeekWire Cloud Summit here, and in addition to main stage keynotes we’ll offer deep technical sessions in three breakout areas throughout the day: Cloud Migration, DevOps and Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning. We’ll also offer a business track session, which will include a CEO panel featuring ExtraHop CEO Arif Kareem; Icertis CEO Samir Bodas; and Integris CEO Kristina Bergman and a venture capital panel with Sudip Chakrabarti of Madrona Venture Group; Preeti Rathi of Ignition Partners and Sheila Gulati of Tola Capital.

The GeekWire Cloud Summit is our most technical conference of the year, drawing more than 600 technology leaders to discuss what’s next in cloud computing and learn insights from those who’ve been in the trenches.

There aren’t many cloud computing conferences that are produced outside of the cloud vendors themselves, and the GeekWire Cloud Summit is a great value for engineers, developers, CIOs, CTOs and other business and tech leaders to dive deeper into the most important technologies behind the cloud.

A big thanks to F5, which is serving as the 2019 GeekWire Cloud Summit title sponsor. Also, thanks to gold, silver and supporting sponsors: Vulcan, City of Bellevue, Algorithmia, OpenSquare, Wave Business, First Tech Federal Credit Union, Bellevue College, MongoDB, and Kazuhm.
