Last year I covered Cloudcamp Seattle organized at Amazon HQ here.
Overall, it was an interesting collection of people talking about everything Cloud Computing. This unconference style camps will play a major role in promoting Cloud Computing with people who don’t know anything about it and it will also help us to advance the technology to suit the needs of enterprises and governments. Let the conversation continue.
Well, the conversation is going to continue this year on Feb 3rd 2010 at Grand Hyatt Seattle. With Amazon ramping up their cloud computing offerings and Microsoft readying for an onslaught with Windows Azure, Seattle is the place to be right now. Cloudcamp is expected to be buzzing with folks from Microsoft and Amazon talking about the wonders of their technology. This is an ideal place for experts in cloud computing to dig deeper and there will be many sessions that could help individuals and business owners to understand how cloud computing can help them with their needs.
For those who are not aware of Cloudcamp, I would quote this from their website
CloudCamp is an unconference where early adopters of Cloud Computing technologies exchange ideas. With the rapid change occurring in the industry, we need a place where we can meet to share our experiences, challenges and solutions. At CloudCamp, you are encouraged to share your thoughts in several open discussions, as we strive for the advancement of Cloud Computing. End users, IT professionals and vendors are all encouraged to participate.
This year, there will be lightening talks from folks from AWS, Windows Azure, ReliaCloud and Enstratus. The rest of the sessions are opened up to the participants to decide on the topic, in a typical unconference style. I am one of the members of the official organizing team and if you have any questions regarding Cloudcamp Seattle, feel free to contact me. If not, just go over to the website and register for the events. If last year is any indication, the tickets will be sold out real fast. BTW, did I mention that the tickets are free of cost?
