Connecting Cloud experts: Wolken Collective

Michael Wittig – 18 Nov 2016

Today we launch a new project to connect Cloud experts all around the world. We are building a network of independent consultants and engineers engaged in the Cloud industry.

Wolken Collective

Wolken Collective is a closed network of Cloud experts. We will meet the first time at AWS re:Invent 2016 in Las Vegas. We will send out the initial invites in the coming days. From there on, the collective will add new members based on consensus decision-making.

Our mission

A group of Cloud experts is more powerful than a single Cloud expert. We support independent professionals in the Cloud industry to attract and deliver excellent projects by working together in a collective.

Our values

  • Diversity: We appreciate differences and leverage them.
  • Consensus: We come to a decision if everyone agrees.
  • Cooperation: We work together, share knowledge and experience.
  • Expertise: We value skills, and help each other to improve them.

Your Benefits

  • We hangout every week to talk about our projects and new technologies.
  • We help each other with our project work.
  • When forwarding project work, the commission and client rate is transparent to all parties involved. The collective earns nothing.
  • We create a network of Cloud experts by invitation only.

About the name

Wolken is the German word for clouds. A collective is a group of people that share a common interest and work together to achieve a common objective. Collectives are not primarily focused upon an economic benefit.
