Are You Getting Excited About the Cloud Computing Expo in Santa Clara?

It is rare that you would find a collection of all of the Cloud Computing industry giants in one place

Whether you are searching for a Cloud Computing solution for your enterprise or you want to learn about the latest and greatest Cloud Computing technology, The Cloud Computing Expo in Santa Clara, California running from  November 2 until November 4 is for you. http://cloudcomputingexpo.com/general/keynotes1109.htm

Keynote speakers include Richard Marcello, President, Systems & Technology, Unisys, Shelton Shugar SVP Cloud Computing, Yahoo!, and Richard Sarwal VP of Development for Oracle Enterprise Manager, Oracle.

It is rare that you would find a collection of all of the Cloud Computing industry giants in one place, and you definitely would not be able to gather as much information on Cloud Computing from any other single event. Check out the list of exhibitors: http://cloudcomputingexpo.com/general/exhibitors1109.htm.

Here are a couple of the sessions that I am looking forward to:

Cannibalizing Google App Engine

 

Speaker:

Kevin Noonan

Software Developer, Consultant & Entrepreneur
Calbane Ltd.

Track:Management, Testing, Security & Interoperability

 

Google App Engine is an integrated web-stack, so it may not be apparent that its computing resources can be dismembered and consumed in isolation. In this session you will learn how to:
  • Use BigTable, the sweetmeat of Google technology, as a scalable database for desktop or remote web applications.
  • Freely host open-source software such as a blog or CMS for your project or company.
  • Run scheduled tasks and work queues to move App Engine beyond a web-stack to a general computing platform.
  • Host web-services.
  • Serve static web-content (for a site hosted elsewhere).
  • Exploit the XMPP protocol for peer-to-peer architectures, instant-messaging, presence and machine-to-machine communication.
  • Use an abstraction layer over BigTable, for access with JDBC or as a virtual filesystem.
  • Run dynamic languages, such as JRuby and Clojure, on App Engine’s JVM.
