Speaking at Chicago Area Cloud Computing User Group (Feb 25, 2009)


I’ll be speaking Wednesday night at the Cloud Computing User Group in Downers Grove, IL. I have a short presentation on the main computing platforms. If you are a regular reader, you know that I’ve been spending some time going beneath the surface on major platforms. If folks like the high level overview, I’ll do some more in depth talks in the future.

Here are the details and the announcement that Bryce Calhoun sent out:


Join us for the third local meeting of the Cloud Computing User Group – this month in Downers Grove. At this meeting, we will be learning about how Live ID integration works in the Azure cloud computing platform. We’ll demo and dig into the code of an application built in the cloud that integrates directly with the Live ID service and stores information specific to the individual associated with that ID.

Also, Scott Seely, Architect at MySpace, will kick off the meeting with a 20-30 minute overview of the top three cloud computing offerings available today: Google App Engine, Amazon EC3 and Azure Services. His discussion will be primarily focused on a compare/contrast of the functionality and features inherent to each platform.
Please take the time to register here so we can plan appropriately for food: http://www.clicktoattend.com/?id=135321


Come on out. This is a great group and the discussions are getting to be a lot better. We are peeking under the hood now, but should be going deeper over the coming year.
