Thinking like a Cloud Architect with Scaleway

Getting your cloud architecture right from the beginning of your startup journey can be challenging. Architecture starts with a sketch and iteratively moves up to a blueprint. Drawing from the experience of 200+ startups migrating to the cloud, we are going to share important steps (not always technical!) to get your infrastructure simple, agile and cost efficient. These will then be the cornerstones of your future success.

During this session you will learn:

  • The questions you should ask yourself
  • How to plan to build a simple and right-sized architecture
  • Quick wins & successful use cases

Sign up and join us on November 30 to find out all about building effective cloud infrastructure.
