Big Ideas in Software Architecture (for cloud or otherwise)

There are some big ideas in software architecture that are particularly relevant for cloud platforms. In this talk we will introduce a few of these big ideas - eventual consistency, scale out, and design for failure - and discuss the implications of these big ideas on application architecture generally, with specific examples of useful patterns and services drawn from the Windows Azure cloud platform. (Speaker is Bill Wilder, Boston Azure founder and Windows Azure MVP)
