Call[masked] if you are lost!
Let's start the New Year with Cloud 'Stuff'.
The Cloud is an opportunity for developers to embrace agility and change, reinvent themselves, make money and have fun. It's time to start building your dreams on it!
Partner Meetups: mongoDB DC, DevOppsDC
Location: CustomInk, 7902 Westpark Dr, McLean, VA 22102
The location is great for a meetup, but little tricky to get to the building from Parking Garage. Be sure to grab the Driving Directions. Be ready for a tour of the Cool CustomInk office before or after the Meetup!
Time: Wed, Feb 1, 2012, 6:30 - 9:00 PM
There is a profound architecture transition happening in software in 2011, like we see every 15 years: html5 and mobile on the client, cloud on the server.
This talk will explain the opportunities and challenges that the Cloud represents for developers, in 4 areas: Infrastructure, Platform, Software and Development.
This talk will describe the capabilities, philosophies and issues associated with current Cloud Platform offerings (Google Appengine, Azure, Beanstalk, CloudFoundry, Heroku), for different use cases (public, private, hybrid clouds) and the nascent Cloud Development services (Cloudbees, Exo, Cloud9, Github).
We will dive into the code of a sample Cloud Foundry app using Node.js, MongoDb, the Twitter API and Lanyrd Calendar feeds, to show how Cloud Platforms enable a more agile development process.
We will also discuss opportunities and risks for developers to move their apps to the Cloud, new skills to learn, and old habits to forget.
