Cloud Mafia is a community built of companies and individuals who live and breath cloud. The meetup group is open to anyone– developers, CEOs, sales and marketing teams– to meet peers, build networks, share ideas, learn about the cloud and help others learn. We will have lightning talks and guest speakers, including customers with real-world stories, industry luminaries, VCs and more. At heart, this is an informal, social gathering of like-minded cloud enthusiasts out to change the world via the cloud.
Goals:
  • Build a solid community of startup leaders and developers who do business in the cloud and have quarterly events that encourage networking between individuals and help build a brand for the companies.
  • Spinoff events that have a developer/technical focus

Who Should Join?

  • Developers, marketers, sales, founder & CEO, director of IT, etc.
  • You eat, drink, sleep Cloud
  • You want to meet and learn from your peers
  • You believe SaaS is not just an acronym but a philosophy
  • You can’t understand why the world is not flocking to the cloud
