VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2014) - Bernard Golden, ActiveState Vice President of Strategy and author of AWS for Dummies, will present "Cloud Applications: The Next Frontier" at the inaugural IT Cloud Computing Conference (IC3) October 27-28, 2014. Randall Hunt, Technology Evangelist, Amazon Web Services, will also deliver a keynote address at the conference. Golden's talk will focus on how enterprise IT must respond to the opportunity -- and challenge -- that cloud computing represents.
"IC3 represents, in my view, a watershed -- representative of the inevitable move to a formalized approach to integrating cloud computing into enterprise infrastructure environments and organizational practices," said Bernard Golden. "I expect that this training and certification movement will only grow over time and will in less than five years, make cloud computing resemble other standard technology platforms like relational databases and virtualization."
The two-day event will include technical training, certification preparation and hands-on labs at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco. To register or to see details on the IC3 Cloud Scholars program, and discounts courtesy of Intel, please visit www.icee3.com.
