"Cloud Expo was really the event to connect with thought leaders, innovators, business folks who are interested in what the cloud can bring to their business. You know really how it allows them to bring the transformation of the business process."
Sandy Carter, IBM's General Manager for the Cloud Ecosystem and Developers
Cloud Expo is the single show where delegates and technology vendors can meet to experience and discuss the entire world of the cloud.
At 16th Cloud Expo in New York City, Sandy Carter keynoted on women in tech and why women need to take risks and embrace failure to give them the courage to crash through the glass ceiling. She now shares some of her own thoughts and experiences from Cloud Expo.
"Hi my name is Sandy Carter and I'm IBM's General Manager for the Cloud Ecosystem and Developers. In June I went for the first time to the Cloud Expo New York. In fact Roger Strukhoff asked me to come and Keynote. I was really delighted with the vision that he had to really highlight and really headline that first day keynote, focused on girls in tech, and their real need to develop this pipeline in early life, and to spur fathers and others and companies to encourage women to not limit their interests, to pursue their interests and computing and tech topics.
"This topic was called ‘Geek Girls Are Chic.' It was a hit with the audience, but the other thing I found amazing was that the audience was packed out not just to hear this session, which was an amazing session on women and tech, but also to hear about the latest in the cloud.
"I found that the Cloud Expo was really the event to connect with thought leaders, innovators, business folks who are interested in what the cloud can bring to their business. You know really how it allows them to bring the transformation of the business process. As I talked to many in the audience I noticed that these were business leaders, not just technologists, but a combination of both that is really required to be successful in the business. I was just really pleased with the way the Cloud Expo attracted the folks who are most interested and influential in the space. So if you're sitting there and you're trying to figure out how do I transfer my business, or you're a technologist trying to sort through DevOps and Docker and everything else that's going around, I would make sure that you attend Cloud Expo. Now the next one I'm going to attend will be in Santa Clara, CA.It's going to be on November 3-5. I expect the same great things that the team, like Roger, has done in New York City to be there with a California twist in a California style in Santa Clara. I hope that you'll join me there as well."

Containers & Microservices Expo To Be Colocated with Cloud Expo Silicon Valley, November 3-5, 2015 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA
Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities.
Microservices focuses on the business and technology of the software architecture design pattern, in which complex applications are composed of small, independent processes communicating with each other using language-agnostic APIs.
Containers are not being considered for the first time by the cloud community, but a current era of re-consideration has pushed them to the top of the cloud agenda.
Rather than just stuff an OS into a container, for example, developers and deployers should consider a spectrum of microservices and what they can do.
