What's Cloud East about?
Cloud East is about sharing experiences, techniques and advice to make everyone who participates more effective in their daily work. We use a mix of hands-on, tutorial, case study and panel session formats to maximize participant interaction & learning.
There's also plenty of time scheduled outside the main programme to meet others and chat about your common challenges and opportunities.

Cloud and Big Data: unicorns all the way down
Francine Bennett is CEO of Agile Big Data Cloud Zero Carbon Data Science technology firm, Mastodon C.
As well as winning every game of buzzword bingo out there, she is well placed to talk about what's real and important about these topics, which are changing the way that we all do business - what's really important or useful, and as a corollary, what isn't.
Before founding Mastodon C, she spent a number of years working on big data analysis for search engines, helping them to turn lots of data into even more money. She enjoys good coffee, running, sleeping as much as possible, and exploring large datasets.
