Startup Dating 4th Event @ Kojimachi, Nov 25th: What Kind Of Skill Sets Should Infrastructure Engineers Have?


Our November event will invite the heads in charge of developing service strategies to be implemented at major data center and cloud service providers in order to talk about what kind of skill sets infrastructure engineers should have (to survive in the future).

Starting with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google App Engine, cloud services are getting spread out in Japan, which makes us easier to develop scalable and feasible systems. Infrastructure engineers will no longer build a server and mount it on a rack at a data center. Their routine jobs will be changing to another form.

While the trends on how to build infrastructure are changing, what are required for you to keep being as an edgy engineer? Let’s hear the perspectives of experts leading these infrastructure services.
