CloudFest – That’s a Wrap!

cloudfest 2022

CloudFest, the world-class cloud hosting and computing conference, pushed through all the Covid restrictions and red tape to put on a safe and successful flagship event, even as Germany hit its highest infection rate. Over 6,000 Cloud Experts flocked to Europa Park for what’s been dubbed by many the CloudFest “Covid Edition,” as attendees were taking countless Covid tests and sporting stylish branded medical masks at every stop.

CloudFest Hackathon

Our first stop was the 2022 CloudFest Hackathon, where we sponsored the event and submitted a project in the hackathon. Project Lead Aleksandar Savkovic led ten people from Codeable, Ionos, Innovation Lab, T-Systems, Healthrise, and 4fb GMBH.

What was the project about? 

Our project was securing WordPress through WP-CLI; we overachieved the hackathon goal by completing 10 WP CLI commands instead of the six we initially planned. Thanks to our WordPress Community Manager Aleksandar Savkovic, Cloudways took home the best presentation award!

You can find more about commands and get the code from GitHub by visiting the site we created during the hackathon.

CloudFest Cloudways Keynote 

Cloudways CMO Santi Costa gave a keynote address about how to design and develop customers’ experiences from the outside-in. WOAH! EDGILITY! (That’s what the address was called.)
