As you’ve all heard and seen if you attended, Cloud Connect was a huge success! Workshops, conference sessions, the expo and especially our keynote rooms were packed with attendees wanting to hear about the latest innovations and experiences in cloud computing. Thanks to everyone who made the event possible.
And a special thanks to everyone who participated in our DonorsChoose.org campaign, by donating money, filling out evals, or voting for their favorite Launch Pad finalist. We had a record breaking over 1600 evals completed which shows the engagement and dedication of the Cloud Connect audience to improving conference content and giving back to the community. Because of you, UBM TechWeb and Cloud Connect will donate over $2500 to Bay Area math and science public school projects via our partnership with DonorsChoose.org. Three of our selected projects were completed before the event even began (amazing), with the remaining projects reaching completion stage once our final donation is made.
Take a look at the classrooms and kids we’re helping and know that your participation was an integral part of the process.
Thanks again for making Cloud Connect the must attend cloud conference of 2011 and sharing in our desire to promote and improve math and science education in the Bay Area. Here’s to all the future cloud evangelists and engineers!
