TECHunplugged London, Update #2
Join us in London on the 12th of May for the next TECHunplugged!
For those of you that are not familiar with this event, TECHunplugged is a one-day conference focused on the latest technology trends and how these technologies can be adopted to the real world. In fact, Real World IT is the theme of the day. The format is simple. Selected industry influencers present on what they see in the field, followed by vendors presenting their solutions and points of view. Our goal is to bring together end users, influencers and vendors for a day of learning, exchanging information and peer-to-peer networking.
Meet our influencers!
The influencer line-up for this TECHunplugged edition is amazing, as well as the agenda for the day, and this week I will be introducing Nigel Poulton.
Nigel is a popular figure in the tech industry, renowned for his love of deep technical knowledge. He writes a popular long-running technology blog as well as hosting the popular “In Tech We Trust” weekly podcast, both known for their excellent treatment of technical topics. Nigel has worked in technology for 15 years with nearly 10 of those years spent designing and managing solutions in some of the most demanding corporate IT environments in the world. Nigel has worked his way up from changing tapes and resetting passwords to designing resilient, high performance, petabyte scale solutions. He also owns and manages production technology environments, predominantly in the financial services sector. Nigel is currently working on container technologies including Docker.
Nigel will be talking about “Deploying Clouds and Containers”
The session will walk through several ways of deploying enterprise class infrastructure to the public cloud. It will demo some of the latest and greatest tools for deploying infrastructure as well as applications.
A unique chance to see a real-time demo on how to practically deploy container-based applications on public cloud infrastructure like Amazon AWS.
Nigel is also taking part in one of the AMA (Ask Me Anything) roundtables, a moderated panel where attendees can ask their questions directly to influencers and sponsors.
