As Docker containers picks up steam, the last weekend in March, Austin enjoyed the first Container Days #cdatx. This event was modeled after the highly successful DevOps days. It was a great event and credit goes to Boyd Hemphill from Stack Engine for spear-heading the effort.
Last week, our life sciences and healthcare solution practice was officially recognized as a Life Sciences Competency Partner by Amazon Web Services. We share this recognition with the seven original systems integration partners, announced with the launch of the program in October 2014. However, the small size of this expert group is not reflective of the amount of innovation in the health sector, but rather the complexity of issues subject matter expertise relevant for success with cloud infrastructure in this area.
Last week was AWS re:Invent 2014, the annual Amazon Web Services conference. Every year, the event brings with it the newest announcements in Amazon cloud products, services and strategies.
Amazon Web Services’ re:Invent conference this week in Las Vegas will have something for every cloud provider.
The Flux7 team is there in full force building on its strong AWS Advanced Consulting Partner relationship. We’re there to soak in all we can to continue successfully helping launch startups into a self-managed mode of business agility. Each team member’s eyes are wide open and ears finely tuned to the developing conversations that will be forged and shared
And, it’s a good thing, too. There are those depending on us to do just that.
As I’m flying from Austin, the home of Flux7, to the Silicon Valley, my immediate thoughts are honed in on the session I’m sharing this week at the Internet of Things Expo in Santa Clara. I’ll be discussing how Docker helped our client Horan & Bird quickly advance the development of its IoT app. It’s a really good story. And one I hope you have a chance to hear at the conference.
If you won’t be attending, you can read about it here.
But, as my jet mates and I soar above the clouds over Nevada, my thoughts are also wandering to other significant events, both recent and upcoming.
Next week, the Flux7 team is attending the first annual DockerCon, a two-day Docker-centric event that is being organized by Docker Inc. By far the most exciting part for us will be presenting our developing productivity workflow with our client Auto.com, a Chicago-based online portal that delivers information and services for finding new and used vehicles, and a subsidiary of Classified Ventures.
DevOpsDays Austin 2014 came to an end earlier this week, on Tuesday. It was a great event; one of the best I have been to during the past year. The event was well organized by Ernest Mueller and other volunteers.
#DevOpsDays Austin is approaching fast. Today, I was awoken by an email about the attendee information for the event. The Flux7 team will be attending the event, and we are looking forward to networking with the #DevOps community in Austin.
As we expected it to be, the AWS Summit this week was an excellent experience. We talked to a lot of interesting people, new and old. We gathered several customer leads, shared technology best practices, talked about business development strategies, and explored several partnership opportunities. As promised, I am now sharing with you my experience in San Francisco, so please read on.
