Infobip Shift Conference 2023 - 3 Pitfalls Everyone Should Avoid with Cloud Data

Back in 2018 I was exposed for the first time to an amazing conference then known as Shift Developer Conference. It was an amazing location in Split, Croatia and one of the founders, Ivan Burazin quickly became a good friend.

I spoke on the main stage which was hosted in the Croatian National Opera House, something that remains both a special experience and was recorded. 

I've stayed in contact with Ivan over the years and wanted to return, but pandemics and other events kept me away, until this year. I bumped into Ivan at last year's KubeCon NA in Detroit, MA and while catching up on his activities he encouraged me to submit some talks right away.

So I did.

This year's Shift Conference is from 18-19 Sep and word on the street is that they are looking at around 5000 attendees. Below you will find the outline of my talk. 

Last time I was at this event I spent my time helping others jump start their open source careers. This time around I plan to help every cloud native user avoid the common pitfalls around the flood of cloud data that typically comes with the user experience.

Key Takeaways

Attendees to this session will gain insights into the data explosion that is part of the large scale cloud native world. Real customer experiences and examples (near misses) are used to highlight the top three lessons learned as their developers transitioned their data needs into cloud native environments.


The daily hype is all around you. From cloud native, multicloud, to hybrid cloud, this is the path to your digital future. The choices you make as a developer doesn’t preclude the daily work of enhancing your customer's experience and agile delivery of your applications. With all this delivery and infrastructure, the amount of data generated when engaging with any cloud experience. Regulatory and compliance pressures force us to store audit and observability data. Understanding the pitfalls around the collection, storage, and maintenance of your cloud data can mean the difference between bankruptcy and success with our cloud native strategy. Let us take you on a journey, looking closely at the decisions you are making as a developer delivering and dealing with monitoring your applications.

The schedule should be filling out in the coming weeks, so be sure to register and I'll see you there!
