There is a lot of talk in the industry about Cloud Computing and many vendors who are offering or promising future solutions to allow developers to take advantage of “The Cloud.” These solutions span the gamut from hosting virtual machines with dynamic deployment to entirely new Cloud Computing OS and database platforms. No matter how you cut through hype around Cloud Computing just about everybody agrees this will evolve in to the next great platform war. With so many choices it is difficult for many to decide where to begin.

The Software Association of Oregon Dev Forum has partnered with the Portland State Business Accelerator and the Portland SIG of TiE Oregon to bring you the most comprehensive and in-depth technical discussion in Portland about Cloud Computing yet. This program is specifically designed for developers and architects. In one afternoon we intend to host a collaborative best practice exchange aimed specifically at the top things developers and architects need to know in order to make the right Cloud Computing platform evaluation and implementation decisions.

The format will be a lunch with a panel discussion that is followed by a set of tracks and breakout sessions where you can do the deep dives and ask the hard technical questions. Panelist and speakers include well known technical evangelists from some of the leading cloud platforms as well as local PDX high-tech gurus that have “been there / done that” with these platforms. (When registering, you will be asked to select only one track - so choose wisely!)
