Monthly Learning Meeting

Join us to tour Rackspace!

Seating is limited! Register today to reserve your spot.

Rackspace, the Managed Cloud Company, operates in an industry that requires expertise nearly at the speed of innovation. This has presented some significant challenges in learning and development at Rackspace, which has in turn led the company to develop a new approach to content development. This model, dubbed the Rapid Content Development Sprint, leverages agile development methodologies, and gathers content development specialists, subject matter experts, instructors, and a cutting edge cloud-enabled lab environment, to create a technical training experience designed from the ground up to be hands-on learning. While this innovative model was designed for developing advanced information technology training content, it can be adapted for any technically-focused content development.

Registrant names must be turned in to Rackspace prior to the event.
