Slack co-founder and CTO Cal Henderson, Microsoft CTO Kevin Scott and Amazon Web Services S3 VP Mai-Lan Tomsen Bukovec are among the technical leaders speaking at the GeekWire Cloud Summit, June 5 2019 in Bellevue, Wash.

We’re just one week away from the third annual GeekWire Cloud Summit, which will feature some of the leading forces behind this incredible once-in-a-generation shift in how businesses use and manage information technology.

Join us next Wednesday, June 5th, in Bellevue at the Meydenbauer Center for another great day of speakers, technical sessions, and business insights that will benefit anyone working in or around cloud computing. We’ve put together a great agenda comprised of representatives from major cloud computing companies and disruptive startups that are shaping the next five years of the cloud.

Highlights from  the agenda include:

  • Microsoft CTO Kevin Scott, who has seen massive shifts in how people make and consume technology products in his more than 20 years working in technology.
  • Amazon Web Services’ Mai-Lan Tomsen Bukovec, leader of its S3 storage service and a passionate advocate for helping companies store and manage data in the cloud.
  • Slack’s Cal Henderson, the soon-to-be-public workplace collaboration company’s co-founder and chief technology officer, who helped Slack rapidly scale its popular service.
  • Joe Beda, Brendan Burns, and Craig McLuckie, the co-developers of Kubernetes, long-time open-source community advocates, and architects of the future of the cloud.

In between those great sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from experts like Google’s Tara Hernandez, Chef’s Nell Shamrell-Harrington, and Pulumi CTO Luke Hoban on how to set up your company to take advantage of the DevOps movement or modernize older applications for cloud services in the Cloud Migration track. Alongside those technical tracks we’ll also showcase business leaders in cloud computing like Icertis CEO Samir Bodas, BJ Moore, executive vice president and CIO at Providence Health, and Preeti Rathi of Ignition Partners.

Tickets are on sale for the GeekWire Cloud Summit here. It 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.
