Google Cloud has announced that its annual Cloud Next event is now being shifted to a multi-week, digital event series called Google Cloud Next ’20: OnAir.
Google Cloud Next was added to the list of technology conferences that were moved to digital in the wake of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It was announced by Google on March 2 that the conference would still be held the same weekend it was scheduled but later moved it online, presented as Google Cloud Next ’20: Digital Connect. Two weeks down the line, Google however decided to postpone the online conference and “hold the event when the timing is right.”
The free, nine-week digital series is now expected to happen between July 14 to September 8. It will feature more than 200 sessions including keynotes from industry leaders and learning opportunities with Google developers. Google Cloud Next ’20 will provide interactive developer and learning programs like Study Jams and Cloud Hero along with a free access of one month to learning paths on Qwiklabs and Pluralsight. Each week will focus on a new topic: productivity and collaboration, infrastructure, security, data analytics, data management and databases, industry insights, application modernization, cloud artificial intelligence (AI), and business application platform.
Users can register for the Google Cloud Next ’20: Air for free on the Next OnAir website. Upon registration, they can build a customized program and engage with fellow attendees, industry peers, and partners throughout the nine weeks.
