CenturyLink Cloud and Dynatrace are teaming for an Awesome Tech Event!

Join us at the new CenturyLink Cloud Developer Center for this hands-on learning CloudWalk. For those of you unfamiliar with this concept, CloudWalks are technical events where people can get together to experience technology in a firsthand learning environment. At the Cloudwalk, technical experts guide everyone, technical and non-technical alike, in a group development session. You can read this recap of our Dynatrace CloudWalkto gain more insight into this unique concept that inspires education, collaboration, and partnerships throughout the technology community.

To celebrate our first CenturyLink St. Louis Users Group Meetup of 2016, everyone who attends receives a FREE Developer Bundle!

This includes a free dev/test environment on the CenturyLink Cloud platform (a healthy credit toward any of our products or services) and a special 30-day free trial from Dynatrace to use their industry leading APM tools.
