Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Bangkok, Singapore, & Hong Kong
For those who couldn’t make it to one of the sessions, here are some of the highlights from our Kick aaS five-city SoftLayer whirlwind tour. For the scoop on the entire event, check out the first Asia Roadshow blog.
We met with amazing startups, developers, and entrepreneurs during our technical workshops who were all eager to explore, grow, and exploit cloud computing to its full capacity. We talked about industry best practices and global trending use cases.
It’s so exciting to see the tech community interested in the cloud adoption in Asia and where and how it’s taking today’s businesses!
Tales From #SLAsiaRoadshow
Kevin Tan (@s1lve3rd3m0n), CEO, Double Edge Software and Iskandar Reza (@iskandarreza), Cirrus Byte commented that the introduction to the company was an eye opener, and they were glad to get the technical overview of the services, control portal and flexibility offered by SoftLayer cloud.
A chunk of the workshop focused on technical hands-on-training. Phil Jackson, lead developer advocate (@underscorephil), and Chris Gallo, developer community advocate (@allmightspiff), set up attendees with demo accounts to run test scenarios and taught folks how to automate a blog on the cloud.
Casey Lau, Catalyst lead (@casey_lau) and Mic Kwok, sales engineer, also joined us in Hong Kong to discuss how other startups leverage the cloud.
"I am not really a techie, but the presentation, set up of the servers, and login was so nice and easy. I would definitely recommend this workshop and SoftLayer to my startup friends in KL [Kuala Lumpur] and PJ[(Petaling Jaya]."
- @hazimsufyan, a student of IT and business technology
Reaching Out to the Asian Community
"The monthly and hourly packages offered without contracts are amazing as most of us would not want to be tied in long-term contracts."
-@jemhor, a consultant in mobile applications and technology space
"Definitely a good start for those who want to know more about cloud. After these sessions, we can definitely play around, compare various services, and go about building our own cloud."
- Steason Tee, Founder of Freak Lab
Also, thanks for the suggestions on what you would like to see in the next workshop, ideas on what startups would like to see from the cloud industry, and on how SoftLayer can continue building and improving itself. Keep them coming!
