Welcome to Cloud Slam'13 Speaker Resource Center!
Thank you for participating in the Cloud Slam 2013 Conference. This page provides speakers with information needed to prepare for the conference. If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact us.
We ask that you help us promote Cloud Slam by letting your peers, colleagues and friends know that you’re presenting at Cloud Slam 2013! To aid you in this process, we’ve created a promotional toolkit with a customizable email template and an email signature.
The Cloud Slam community uses social media heavily – particularly Twitter – so consider using it to promote your talk, and join in on conversations leading up to the conference. Get started today using the official Cloud Slam Twitter handle, #cloudslam2013. Facebook and LinkedIn are also great tools for this purpose.
