Tectonic Summit: First Round of Speakers and Sponsors

October 17, 2016 · By Melissa Smolensky

Today we are announcing our first round of speakers and sponsors for Tectonic Summit, the premier event for enterprise Kubernetes. Happening in New York on December 12 and 13 at the Conrad Hotel, the conference gathers leaders in cloud computing, engineering, infrastructure, operations and DevOps to explore the business implications of adopting Kubernetes in an enterprise environment. Speakers will share their stories of evaluating and using container management systems like Kubernetes.

Kubernetes provides a new way to develop and deliver applications. We will hear stories about development that once took months to accomplish can now take only a week or less. With that power in their hands, enterprises can reach new heights in productivity and success.
