OSCON Open Source Software Superstream Series: Cloud Strategies and Implementation

Video description

Watch Part 1, OSCON Open Source Software Superstream Series: Live Coding—Go, Rust, and Python.
Watch Part 3, OSCON Open Source Software Superstream Series: Infrastructure.

This three-part series of half-day online events gives attendees an overarching perspective of software development from which to make decisions that strengthen and grow companies and industries, a deep knowledge of key open source technologies to make it happen, and a community in which both they and their companies can thrive.

In part 2, Cloud Strategies and Implementation, we wanted to explore the cloud. In the blink of an eye, the cloud has become a pillar of software development. And big vendors, including Amazon, Microsoft, and Google, keep pushing the envelope, adding more and more services. Join us to learn how cloud strategies and their implementation can impact your business.

This event is sponsored by Capital One and features spotlights on the Open Source Initiative and the Python Software Foundation.
