Upcoming February Sessions on Web and Cloud at Portland Cloud Intelligence and CloudFest Denver

Here are some talks I and my Neudesic colleageus are giving on web, cloud, and programming at Portland Cloud Intelligence (Feb 2) and CloudFest Denver (Feb 9)

Development in the Cloud

Portland Cloud Intelligence Thu Feb 2 1:00p
View Walk-through

What’s it like to develop for the cloud? In this session, you’ll see what the development experience is like for Windows Azure. We’ll start with “Hello, Cloud” in Visual Studio, running it first in the local simulation environment and then deploying to a data center in the cloud. We’ll progressively add more features to the application to illustrate the use of different cloud services. Both the local simulation environment and deployment to a cloud data center will be shown. We’ll also discuss the software development lifecycle and share best practices for cloud development. You’ll leave with an understanding of the differences and similarities between cloud development and enterprise development.

Keeping an Eye on the Cloud: Azure Diagnostics
Mike Erickson (@mgerickson)
CloudFest Denver Thu Feb 9 4:10p

When an application is running in Windows Azure it can be difficult to know what is happening. In this session we will cover the techniques that you can implement to gather diagnostic information from the instances running in Azure. We will discuss how you can instrument your code to help you understand what is happening while it is running. We will also look at how you can connect to instances that are running in Azure.

Windows Azure Design Patterns

In order to design great cloud solutions architects need to understand the design patterns intrinsic to their cloud platform. In this session we will review the design patterns inherent in the Windows Azure platform services, followed by a discussion of application patterns for combining those services. Design patterns will be reviewed for compute, storage, relational data, communication, security, and networking. Key patterns will be illustrated with application examples.

When Worlds Collide: HTML5 Meets the Cloud

What does HTML5 mean for cloud computing, and vice-versa? When two revolutions are happening simultaneously you can expect interesting synergies and interactions. Even as cloud computing and social networks are profoundly transforming the back end, HTML5 and mobile devices are profoundly transforming the front end. When these worlds collide we can achieve something truly remarkable: rich, take-anywhere immersive experiences backed by on-demand, elastic services running at global scale. Both worlds are driving changes in the way we design software, and good solution architecture demands they be considered jointly. In this session you'll see how HTML5 and the cloud combine functionally and architecturally, illustrated by example.
