Hackathon

CloudFest Hackathon returns as a pre-cursor to our conference and once again stands as our commitment to the open source movement. During this two-day event, developers and coders will work side-by-side on real-world, open source projects furnished by the community. Following its intensive problem-solving conclusion, results will be presented at the main.FORUM during CloudFest and released soon after on GitHub for the world-at-large to access.

Come2Gather Party

Everyone is invited to join in as we are offering up lots of cold drinks, yummy food and the perfect backdrop to connect with partners, colleagues and friends. Our first CloudFest keynote address kicks off promptly the next morning, so Come2Gather is most assuredly the ideal introduction to all the great things this week has to offer.

Diversity in Tech Mixer

5 pm
Location: Buena Vista Bar / Castillo Alcazar

The i2Coalition Diversity & Inclusion Initiative invites you to celebrate our differences at the Diversity in Tech Mixer at CloudFest, co-sponsored by cPanel and GoDaddy. The Internet industry attempts to connect us all, and it’s stronger when it’s actually built by diverse individuals – in terms of gender, sexual orientation, religion, ability, thought, and more. Let’s get together to talk about policies and practices that promote underrepresented people of all kinds within technology to create a better Internet.

VIP-Event
