Community

 

Since its creation in 2011, Elastacloud has had a huge hand in developing the cloud community.

Our Directors Andy and Richard founded the UK Azure User Group in 2011, and the group is sponsored and run by Elastacloud. The group brings together users and developers of Microsoft Azure and regularly attracts hundreds of keen community members to monthly meetings across the UK. The group has hosted some of the best speakers in the Technical community, and the now has around 2,000 active members.

For 4 of the past 5 years, the group has hosted Scott Guthrie, Executive Vice President of the Cloud and Enterprise Group at Microsoft, drawing over 1,000 attendees to each event. We have also hosted several AzureCraft events specially aimed at children and young people to encourage them to get into programming in an engaging way by teaching them how to build their own Minecraft servers.

We encourage those who work for us to be active members in the technical community. Elastacloud sponsor several other Meetup groups that are founded and run by our team, including ‘Internet of Things and Data Science Innovators UK’, ‘The UK Cloud Infrastructure User Group’ and ‘Inspiring Women in Data Science.’
