We discuss the new era of public cloud adoption. Six months ago there were people who were just getting their toes wet in public cloud and now those same people are going all in, not just with dev-test environments but with their major production initiatives.
We also discuss some of the common pitfalls and places where we see organizations getting stuck in their cloud programs, from lost connections between on-prem and the cloud or simply mislabeling code that deploys the wrong applications.
Finally we discuss how to take the next steps to continue your education. Chris is a VMware expert, but a few years ago when he recognized the value of public cloud, he enrolled in ACloudGuru and signed up for the 12-month free tier in AWS. He is still actively learning about AWS and VMware to better consult his clients on their cloud initiatives.
