Last year we ran Deploycon for the first time and it was a great success. For the first time in the industry, we had a good collection of vendors, pundits and enterprise buyers getting together in a room and discuss Platform as a Service seriously. Before that, I literally begged various conferences to run an exclusive track on PaaS but no one cared about my request. If no one is ready to try something, I really want to try that and the end result was Rishidot Research running Deploycon solely focussed on PaaS. Deploycon 2012 brought to focus that enterprises are not just interested in PaaS but they are actually testing it out for their mission critical apps.
The conference was well received for the content which, in turn, added tremendous pressure on us to do it right again. This year we are going to offer high quality content again for the conference attendees and I hope the planned agenda speaks about what every attendee can expect. I am pretty confident that they will not go out disappointed and our moderators are going to make sure that every single session offers only valuable content and no marketing pitches. We believe that vendors gain maximum value by being thought leaders than marketers and it is going to reflect in our sessions at Deploycon 2013.
This year we have partnered with Cloud Connect, a premier conference organized by UBM Tech around the world, and it will be held at Santa Clara Convention Center on April 2nd 2013. Our registration form is live on Deploycon website now. Deploycon attendees will get great discounts on the full Cloud Connect conference pass. Also, if you are a developer, please get in touch with us. We can offer 50% discount on the Deploycon conference pass (not the Cloud Connect pass). We were the first to tell the world that developers are the face of modern IT before many other analyst firm even woke up to that fact. We were the first to run a conference focussed on PaaS. We want to salute the developers who are going to unleash a service centric world which will change business and personal lives in ways that we can’t even imagine today. As a result, we want to go out of the way to make it easy for developers to attend the conference. Get in touch with us and we will work with you to get you to Deploycon on April 2nd.
Looking forward to see you all at Deploycon 2013.
