“We stand by a principle “Technicians for technicians”. All of our workshops are about specific matters and are presented by experienced engineers. It is the practical knowledge which is the main value for participants,” says Aleksandra Ochranowicz, the Coordinator of the Beyond.pl Cloud Academy project. “We are aware that the majority of such events take place in Warsaw. We are interested in the popularization of cloud computing as a working method with data also in other, equally important cities for business,” Ochranowicz states.
This year’s main topic of the series is „Efficient cloud implementation”. A special guest will be Miroslav Burnejko, influencer and author of the Chmurowisko.pl blog.

“We invite to take part mostly IT Specialists with a good knowledge of cloud computing. Certainly, employees of IT Departments at all levels no matter of the size of the company will feel that it was the right place to be. The event is also aimed at students close to graduating, who want to confront theoretical knowledge with real world examples. We want practitioners to exchange their experiences,” invites the Coordinator.
There are many speeches In the event program that present cloud computing capabilities based on different virtual systems – from VMware, through e24cloud, Open Stack, to Microsoft Azure Stack.
