4 Things You Need To Know About Cloud Applications

Find out what's on the frontier of cloud applications from Bernard Golden and a lineup of cloud experts at Interop New York.

Cloud infrastructure has changed the face of infrastructure, making computing resources cheaper, more scalable and easier to access. However, unpredictable loads, unknown user populations, a myriad of devices used, and an external infrastructure all contribute to a very tricky environment in which to build and manage cloud applications.

But fear not. To help elucidate some of your cloud application woes, Bernard Golden, Author of Amazon Web Services for Dummies and VP of Strategy at ActiveState will be presenting the Cloud Applications: The Next Generation workshop at Interop New York.

“Attendees can expect to learn what’s on the frontier of cloud applications from world-class experts,” said Golden. Some of those experts include, Brent Smithurst, VP of Product Management & Marketing at ActiveState, Sravish Sridhar, Founder & CEO of Kinvey and Mark Russinovich, Technical Fellow, Windows Azure at Microsoft.

This workshop is ideal for software developers, application development managers, IT Operations personnel and management, IT finance personnel, and senior IT executives.

However, “anyone involved in building or operating applications would be well-served to attend and can look forward to cutting-edge knowledge and lively, engaging discussion,” said Golden.

The workshop is made up of four modules:

1: Introduction: Why cloud computing applications are different and what that means for IT

2: APIs: the new lingua franca of enterprise applications — how to design, build, and operate API-facing applications

3: PaaS: using frameworks to accelerate application delivery and achieve the promise of DevOps

4: Mobile: the rise of the new client, and how mobile is the future of enterprise IT
