Cloud Computing is one of the fastest growing segments in the Tech industry with a plethora of job openings being posted for Cloud Architects in general and OpenStack Engineers in particular. If you are currently a server, network, or storage admin, how do make the change to Cloud Computing? If you are already a virtualization admin, how do you take the next step to becoming a Cloud Architect? We will talk about the opportunities currently available in both the vendor and end-user space and where we are seeing the biggest needs and strongest growth in the Cloud and OpenStack markets. We will also explore, with the help of speakers who have made the transition, what experiences, skill sets, and knowledge domains are required to be a Cloud Architect for a vendor or an end-user.
