Cloud MafiaCloud Mafia is a community of companies and individuals who live and breathe cloud. The group’s primary objective is to build a solid community of startup leaders and developers who do business in the cloud.

The next Cloud Mafia Meetup is free to attend and takes place on Wednesday, October 19, at 6 p.m. at Manor West in San Francisco. The meetup group is open to anyone — from developers to CEOs and sales/marketing teams — and it’s designed for participants to meet peers, build networks, share ideas, learn about the cloud and help others learn. This group presents a great opportunity to network, build relationships and help build a brand for the companies involved. There will be lightning talks and guest speakers, including customers with real-world stories, industry luminaries, VCs and more.

At heart, this is an informal, social gathering of like-minded cloud enthusiasts out to change the world via the cloud. The cloud is quickly taking over the world, and this community is at the heart of it all. We have had amazing conversations, networking, hiring and partnerships stemming from our first event.

Cloud Mafia was created by Loggly, New Relic and DotCloud. The upcoming event is sponsored by MongoDB, AppDirect and Taos as well as CloudTimes.
