Datapipe is headed to Vegas next week for AWS re:Invent 2015! The event is designed to bring together the cloud computing community for a week filled with collaboration and best practices regarding AWS. Whether you are going to be onsite or keeping up on the event activity from afar, there are a number of ways to connect with Datapipe during the event:
Visit Our Booth
As one of only six diamond sponsors, we will have a massive Datapipe booth in the center of expo— where you’ll find Datapipe representatives who can walk you through our services and show you how to get the most out of AWS. It’s an opportunity to engage with key members of the Datapipe executive team including our CSO, Joel Friedman and myself.
In addition, you can also connect with members of our team at the DualSpark booth thanks to our recent acquisition. Be sure to stop by the DualSpark booth, right around the corner from ours.
If you need a little pick-me-up, we’ll have coffee and refreshments in the DualSpark booth every day. Stop by and get your fuel for the day!
See you on the floor: Datapipe Booth 220 and DualSpark Booth 724
Catch Our Breakout Sessions
We’re hosting two sessions this year, one of which will be a joint presentation with McDonald’s CTO, Frank Ellermeyer. Stop by to hear us discuss the work we’ve been doing to develop the company’s first born-in-the-cloud mobile application. In the session, we will discuss the ongoing process of moving an iconic global enterprise into the 21st century, including the factors the company considered before moving to AWS and security concerns that needed to be addressed.
We will also be hosting another session titled “Building and Deploying a Modern Big Data Architecture on AWS.” It is no surprise the AWS platform enables enterprises to use data to solve business problems. However, to truly take advantage of AWS, enterprises need a way to collect, store, process, analyze, and continually execute on their data. Jason Woodlee, our senior director of cloud products will discuss the technical details of designing and deploying a modern big data architecture on AWS, including application purpose and design, development environment and language overview, DevOps automation best practices, and continuous build and test frameworks.
Attend the sessions:
- McDonald’s Uses AWS to Launch Applications Quickly Around the Globe and Engage Customers: Wednesday, October 7 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm in Murano 3203
- Building and Deploying a Modern Big Data Architecture on AWS: Thursday, October 8 from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm in Delfino 4002
