Cloud Computing EPAM Open Day Organizational Report


    The fourth Open Day from Epam Systems was successfully held on May 20 , in the already traditional meeting place - IT-cafe. This time the theme of the day was Cloud, which brought together over a hundred people. Such an interest was a pleasant, but nevertheless, surprise. Not only Kharkovites were present in the hall; guests from Kiev, Minsk and other cities visited us. Due to the limited number of seats, not everyone was able to attend the event (the number of people registered doubled the number of seats). Epam promises to take this experience into account and to create more places for visitors in subsequent events.
    Representatives of the majority of Kharkiv IT companies came to listen to the speakers' reports. An extensive program, seven speakers, awaited visitors.
    Ivan Pesin (Lviv) clearly showed how to create real LAMP infrastructure on Amazon AWS, and Eli Feldman (New York) explained why EPAM decided to build its Private Cloud.

    During the event, the speakers united in a team and had an active discussion with the audience, not only during breaks, but also after the end of the event. If we talk about the features of this Epam Open Day, then he, like no other, was distinguished by the audience’s interest in reports and the general positive atmosphere.
