Comcast Labs Connect is excited to announce the Cloud Native Revolution conference in Philadelphia, birthplace of America.  Surrounded by revolutionary landmarks such as Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, we will show how organizations are using cloud tech to transform “business as usual” into "business of the future.”

Cloud native adopters have declared their independence from heavy infrastructure and are paving the way for groundbreaking innovations in everything from augmented & virtual reality to healthcare and space exploration. Cloud native adopters are even changing the pace at which their organizations can deliver products by allowing them to seamlessly increase scale and reliability. 

At Comcast, we don’t just talk about cloud tech. It plays a key role in our flagship products, Xfinity’s X1 and xFi. So come and join us in October and see what the Cloud Native Revolution is all about.

Proceeds from Cloud Native Revolution will be donated to The Pennsylvania Center for Adapted Sports, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

The Pennsylvania Center for Adapted Sports operates 13 sport-and-wellness programs year-round, with a focus on building inclusive communities for individuals with disabilities in a barrier-free and supportive setting. PCAS serves over 500 individuals with disabilities annually reaching, together with their families, over 2,000 people. Participants include children, adults, seniors, and veterans with disabilities. Each year, athletes and volunteers dedicate countless hours to helping enable people with disabilities improve their health and wellness as well as activity levels.

If you have questions about the deductibility of your donation, please contact a tax professional.
