Platform as a Service: Transforming the lives of Java Developers

6:00 - 7:00 Networking & Light Dinner (Thanks Google!)

7:00 - 7:15 Announcements

7:15 - 8:15 Platform as a Service: Transforming the lives of Java Developers

8:15 - 8:30 Q&A

Java developers today face significant hurdles and delays in building and deploying new innovative applications quickly and efficiently. So how can middleware in the cloud in the form of a PaaS (Platform as a Service)make their lives simpler and easier? Sacha Labourey, CEO of CloudBees and former CTO of JBoss, will discuss how PaaS can make developers more productive, creative, empowered and responsible for their ultimate objective: creating value for the business by focusing 100% of their time on developing business-critical applications. 

Discussion Topics: 
Life as a developer today 
The future is based on Service not Software 
Continuous Integration – Continuous Deployment 
Any Cloud: Public, Private or Hybrid 
Software development in the cloud era 
The CloudBees PaaS

Sacha Labourey CEO and Founder

Sacha was born in Neuchâtel, Switzerland and graduated in 1999 from EPFL. It was during Sacha's studies in 1996 that he started his first consulting business - Cogito Informatique. In 2001, he joined Marc Fleury's JBoss project as a core contributor and implemented JBoss' original clustering features. In 2003, Sacha founded the European headquarters for JBoss and, as GM for Europe, led the strategy and partnerships that helped fuel the company's growth in that region. While in this position, he led the recruitment of some of JBoss' key talent and acquisition of key technology. In 2005, he was appointed CTO of JBoss, Inc. and as such, oversaw all of the JBoss engineering activities. In June 2006, JBoss, Inc. was acquired by Red Hat (NYSE:RHT). After the acquisition, Sacha remained JBoss CTO and played a crucial role in integrating and productizing JBoss software with Red Hat offerings. In 2007, Sacha became co-General Manager of Red Hat's middleware division. He ultimately left Red Hat in April 2009. Following a period of research, Sacha became convinced that public cloud infrastructure would lead a fundamental IT paradigm shift and that middleware would play a key role in that shift. As a result CloudBees, Inc. was formed in April 2010.

    I'd like to network with some Java professionals specifically in the arena of enterprise SaaS development and performance. I'll drop by to see if there's some extra room and hopefully catch up with a few of you.
