Cloud Expo 2013 kicks off today at New York City’s Javits Center and Rackspace has plenty of opportunities for you learn about the cloud, mingle with Rackers and discover new ways cloud computing can help your business.
Heading to Cloud Expo in NYC from June 10 to June 13? We hope to see you at our booth (#300) and invite you to check out some of our featured educational sessions hosted by Rackers, including a keynote by Rackspace Vice President of Enterprise Cloud Solutions Lisa Larson that examines the innovation behind the hybrid cloud.
Last year, in my cloud predictions for 2012, I focused heavily on how open source code will become the standard and how the future will be mobile. In 2012, we at Rackspace officially launched our open cloud effort built on OpenStack; and mobility now dominates day-to-day work and life.
Cloud Expo kicks off today at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif. The 11th International Cloud Expo brings together some of the brightest minds in the cloud and there will be a number of Rackers there to discuss the power of the open cloud during a thought-provoking keynote presentation and other sessions. Rackers will also be on-hand at the Rackspace booths on the expo show floor.
This week Rackspace heads to New York City for Interop, the annual east coast leg of the enterprise-focused IT event (running through Friday at the Jacob Javits Convention Center). Our experts will be on hand throughout the week to share their knowledge at workshops, in our booth sessions and with a keynote presentation by CTO John Engates.
At Rackspace, we’re growing and hiring, at our headquarters in San Antonio and in other offices around the world. We try to be very careful to hire not just for aptitude and skills but also for fit — within our culture, and for the particular job. So we ask questions like this: “What sort of things do you find satisfying? In other words, what activities give you a kick, either while doing them or immediately after finishing, and you think ‘Oh, when can I do that again?’” It’s a question that often makes candidates stop and think, and tell us where their strengths and passions lie.
