This inaugural CloudCamp North aims to provide a sociable, friendly and relaxed environment for networking and socialising for those involved in building, running or consuming cloud products and services.
There have been a handful of fantastic CloudCamp events across the North of England in recent years and we hope to unite these efforts and other cloud-related tech communities.
We have a fantastic location in the Doubletree Hilton Hotel on Granary Wharf, which is both on the waterfront and next door to Leeds City Station.
We’ll also have a mini jobs board for companies to post cloud-related job opportunities, so bring details of any vacancies you'd like to pin on the board - or if you can’t make it, send us an email with the details.
So if you work in the cloud (or would like to) - come along and get involved.
