December 21, 2010 @ 7:00pm – Become a Cloud Developer
Description: Cloud computing is practically all the IT press, analysts and vendors can talk about these days. Many predict that cloud
computing is the next “big thing” and in just a few more years every software developer will need cloud computing skills.
In this fast moving session, we will discuss how the move to Platform-as-a-Service impacts Java developers, what the “big vendors” like as Google, Amazon, VMWare/SpringSource and Red Hat/JBoss are investing in and what skills you will need to successfully navigate this paradigm shift. Is this as big as when we moved from the green (or amber) screen to Windows-based client-server? Or is it as big as when we moved from fat clients to browser-based applications? Or is it simply just the next logical step in the evolution of your IT department? Let’s get together before Christmas 2010 and have a great discussion!
