The IC3 conference is always a good opportunity to keep up with the latest in the IT and DevOps world. This year’s Fall event was set in San Jose, in the heart of the Silicon Valley, and attracted a great crowd eager to learn more about cloud solutions, and also to share tips and stories.

The conference’s Executive Track focused on how to create high-performing teams, and on the role of IT and DevOps.
