IN THE CLOUD
WEB- PRO /wɛb proʊ/
Short for Web Professional, i.e. someone who builds websites, installs custom software, and delivers a great web experience for their customers. One who makes it pop.
“We hired a Web-Pro for the site relaunch, and now we’re part of the 21st Century!”
Web Professionals are converging upon Web-Pros in the Cloud at CloudFest 2021. Meet peers, potential partners, and industry influencers to learn how Cloud Service Providers and Web Professionals can forge a brighter future together.
CloudFest is the world’s largest gathering of decision-makers representing cloud infrastructure providers, web hosting providers, ISVs, and MSPs. In 2021, we’re inviting all WebPros out there—who help customers bring their businesses online every day—to join us at this one-of-a-kind festival.
Cloud infrastructure only matters if it helps people to make things happen. From helping small business get online to helping them pivot and adapt to massive challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic, Web Pros do much more than “make it pop”. The quick scalability and adaptability offered by large-scale ISVs in partnership with Web Professionals is helping businesses survive previously-unimaginable obstacles.
Web Professionals and eCommerce enablement organizations form a vital link in the cloud-services demand chain—and CloudFest is the best place to forge that link.
WHO WILL I MEET AT CLOUDFEST?
Boutique solutions and quick projects
Zsolt Revay G., Regida Solutions
I work closely with the end client and generally, I’m also part of the project planning team where the technical decisions are always on me. The first thing on the list of technical decisions is the evaluation of the project in terms of resource requirements and advise my clients what hosting provider / hosting package to purchase.
In my opinion “Web Pros in the Cloud” is a great addition to the Cloudfest event because as a web developer I can learn more about hosting options and tech but also share my experience with the hosting providers. Many times the interaction with the hosting providers is done via a ticket system and this results in a superficial human experience. So it is a great opportunity at Cloudfest to connect, socialize and learn from each other.
DevOps and security
Marc Nilius, WP-Wartung24
For more than five years I have focused my work on WordPress: I offer extensive technical support for WordPress websites, including ongoing maintenance with updates and backups.
My work includes security checks, repairing hacked websites, WordPress installations, and SSL facilitation. My clients use a wide variety of hosting providers—I advise them on selecting the best host to work with, including any necessary hosting changes and website relocations.
“Web Pros in the Cloud” makes CloudFest even more interesting for me, because I am addressed directly as a service provider for technical tasks in my area. Contact with the hosting and Cloud industry—as well as further training in this area—is essential for me so I can keep providing my customers with perfect advice.
Large and complex projects
Maria Aragon, Acoco Web
I’ve been working on web projects for over 12 years, and building WordPress websites for SMBs since 2014. For most of my customers I serve as their digital project manager, helping them navigate the complexities in building an online identity, starting with selecting a hosting provider. I help them understand the features they need and why they need them, depending on the type of business and how they want to grow.
To best help my customers, I need to know the environment myself—I’m always learning the various changes in the technology that are constantly emerging. This is why I really like “Web Pros in the Cloud” being part of CloudFest: I can not only get a lot of information on the newest cloud services and companies, but also meet other professionals like me. We can share our experiences, learn from each other, and possibly even create new partnerships.
Large and complex projects
Sebastian Thomas, web://contact GmbH
I mostly focus on back-end development, but I also handle front-end and DevOps jobs like configuring build tasks with webpack or setting up an CI/CD-pipeline.
Depending on customer and project requirements, I implement solutions ranging from statically-generated sites to more complex sites with JAMstack.
I think a topic like Web Pros totally makes sense as part of CloudFest. We, as developers, depend on the Cloud and work on a daily basis with services from a lot of the exhibitors. This is a great opportunity to share thoughts and ideas about the services we love.
