You hear it again and again from the IT community: The skills you have matter. However, what does that mean in the era of cloud computing, PaaS and DevOps? When it comes to developing apps that work in the cloud, the skill sets that businesses are requiring from IT are changing dramatically. At the same time, the barriers between different parts of the department – systems admin, network admin and operations – are breaking down at the same time that the cloud is creating different demands. What do you need to know to survive and thrive in this world? Join Enterprise Cloud News Editor Scott Ferguson, and the CTO of the Cloud Foundry Foundation, Chip Childers, as they discuss the cloud, new skills sets, DevOps and what you need to know to keep ahead of the game in this new world. Join us on Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 12:00 p.m. ET to learn more.
