Announcing PulumiUP Conference 2024

Posted on

Today we announce our annual PulumiUP virtual conference taking place on September 18, 2024. PulumiUP is our global cloud and IaC conference for anyone interested in infrastructure as code, cloud, AI, platform engineering, DevOps, and cloud culture. Every year, we strive to build a program packed with technical talks, demos, and best practices to empower you with new learnings and inspiration that you can apply in your professional life. Attend to hear from industry leaders, experts, and community peers.

What is PulumiUP?

PulumiUP isn’t just another conference, it’s a global gathering of minds passionate about cloud technologies, AI, DevOps, and everything in between. Whether you’re an industry veteran or just dipping your toes into the vast ocean of cloud computing, PulumiUP has something for everyone.

You’ll hear keynotes from Pulumi Founder/CEO Joe Duffy and CTO Luke Hoban, stories from industry leaders on their experiences with cloud adoption and transformation (and how they used Pulumi to make it happen), and talks from other members of the Pulumi community (like you!) aimed at helping you navigate the ever-changing world of the cloud.

Call for Speakers: Your Story Matters

One exciting addition to this year’s event is the call for speakers. We invite you, the community, to share your stories, experiences, and expertise with fellow attendees. Whether it’s a deep dive into a groundbreaking project, lessons learned from failures, or innovative best practices, your voice matters at PulumiUP.
