Upcoming CloudByte Sessions | Events in Pacific Time

Introduction to the CloudBytes

As part of our mission to educate the industry on all matters related to the cloud, select CSA research working groups will be launching a new educational webinar series called CloudBytes. The series will be held monthly, during selected scheduled work group meetings and conducted by fellow CSA members and appointed Industry SME's. The CloudBytes program will look to bring the most important topics to the forefront for education and discussion. In organizing the program, we are issuing a call for expert speakers with proposed topics. Topics submitted must be vendor neutral and approach the topic area from a technical or management approach rather than a vendor specific product or solution. We would also like to hear from members on topics they feel are in most need to learn about, so we can also look to source a speaker where needed.
