A new name and a new direction for the WPCCUG - SteelCloud!

Hey everyone,

Not sure we've had the chance to meet - my name is Matt C. Wilson and I'm stepping up as the new organizer of the Western PA Cloud Computing User Group (WPCCUG).

I've been a member of the group for a couple months, but sadly there hasn't been much activity.  So when the email came across my inbox this week that the site was going to die, I decided to take some action.

I'm pleased to announce that there's a new name, new site, and a new vision for the group:

SteelCloud - the Pittsburgh-area cloud application developers' user group!

I've been working with several folks in Pittsburgh, trying to gather interest in a developer-focused (but not exclusively developer-oriented) user group that would host regular meetups.  We're hoping to line up top-notch speakers from all over to talk about:

  • distributed architecture atop IAAS platforms like Azure, AWS, and Heroku
  • deployment and operations security in a cloud environment
  • cutting-edge web development technologies
  • massive load/stress testing and performance tuning strategies
  • and whatever else suits us!

I hope with this new direction we can really create a great place for cloud technologists to come together, share wisdom, have fun, and go build amazing things.

So check out the new blog: http://steelcloud.github.com

The new meetup site: http://www.meetup.com/steelcloud

Or the github site: http://github.com/steelcloud - we'll be hosting projects, decks / speaker materials, and other stuff there!

See you in the cloud!
