I’ll be back on the road again on Tuesday to squeeze in three more conferences before the end of the year. My stops this time include:
This will be my first time to Berlin, so I’m really looking forward to it. I think it will be especially interesting as this year marks the 20th anniversary of reunification in Germany. While I won’t be there on the actual day (9th), I still think the atmosphere will be a great experience.
I have three sessions at a sold out TechEd Europe this year. On Thursday 12th, I will be presenting Working with the OSS Community: Cloud Computing Interoperability (INT02-IS). This was a late addition to my schedule, and I’ve been working on a sample application that runs across Windows Azure, Google AppEngine, and Amazon EC2 – and as it’s an interactive session, my goal is to show mostly demos and walk through how the application was put together.
In the afternoon I’ll be continuing the theme of cloud computing with Demystifying Cloud Computing (ITS204) in the IT Managers Track. This will be an update of the session that I delivered at TechEd US, with a goal of giving IT Managers the foundational information on what cloud computing is, and why they should care.
To conclude the week on Friday, I’ll be presenting Patterns for Cloud Computing (ARC309) which takes architects and senior developers through 5 patterns for the cloud. If you’ve been following my recent posts on my blogs, then this will be the session that brings all this together.
The week following I’ll be heading back to the West coast for PDC in Los Angeles. I have a BOF Session this year on Will Cloud Computing change your life? This is an INETA organized panel, and I’ll be in good company with Aaron Skonnard, David Pallmann, Michael Stiefel and others.
My final stop will be QCon in San Francisco. This will be my first time at a QCon event. and as I know Floyd and the team well, I’m really looking forward to it. I’m presenting my “Patterns for Cloud Computing” session to open the cloud computing track at the event.
