About this event

Talk title: As cloud professionals, we have many options when it comes to what we focus on. Should you develop the broad set of skills needed to be an architect or go deep in a more specialized area like security or DevOps? Multi-cloud deployments are increasingly popular and will be the norm soon. Should you have certifications in multiple clouds? Some employers consider certifications optional while industry experience in cloud technology is essential. In that case, how can you get your initial experience? There is no one set of answers to these questions that will work for everyone but we can outline strategies for finding a path that works for you.

Speaker: Dan Sullivan is a Principal Engineer with PEAK6 Technologies. He is a software architect and data scientist with extensive experience in data science, machine learning, and cloud architecture.
