EastBay.NET: Open Source Technologies on Azure: A Survey

FUNDAMENTALS at 6:15: Best of //build/ - Beth Massi

MAIN PRESENTATION at 6:45: Open Source Technologies on Azure: A Survey - David Chappell

Even though it was once called Windows Azure, Microsoft’s cloud platform offers more than Windows—there’s plenty of support for open source technologies as well. This presentation takes a broad look at the open source offerings that Azure provides today, including:

-  Linux, where the platform supports several distributions

- Programming technologies, including PHP, Node.js, and others

-  Database technologies, including NoSQL options such as MongoDB and Cassandra

This is an architectural talk, so don’t expect to see demos. Instead, the goal is to give you a big-picture perspective on the open source options available on Azure today.

David Chappell is Principal of Chappell & Associates ( in San Francisco, California. Through his speaking, writing, and consulting, he helps people around the world understand, use, and make better decisions about new technologies.

      I highly recommend "Nosql Distilled - A brief guide to the world of Polyglot Persistence" written by him and Pramod Sadalage. It was the first book I read when I decided to explore other databases. This book was also a great compliment to 7 databases in 7 weeks. Both required reading for anyone doing web scale design and development.

    My apologies on the last minute cancellation. I'm a CS student at City College of San Francisco (also learning C# on my own). Finals and hw caught up to me tonight. Really going to make an effort to make the next meetup.

    I am currently in transit, moving down to the SF Bay Area from Vancouver, BC. This will be my first tech event in the region that I'll [hopefully] soon call 'home'. Very much looking forward to it!
