On Saturday, November 2nd 2013 over 200 folks gathered for Nashville’s 2013 Bar Camp.
The conference was held in the Un-Conference format where the attendees vote on the sessions to be held during the day. No speaker was guaranteed a speaking spot up-front.
Fortunately I am local and can talk about Windows Azure at the drop of a hat. So I proposed presenting on Programming the Cloud. Fortunately my session was one of the ones selected to be presented.
Here is the session abstract:
“We are currently on the cusp of a paradigm shift to Cloud and Hybrid Cloud/On Premises computing and storage architectures. As developers we will need to be ready to take advantage of that shift. This session will demonstrate how to develop Cloud based applications through the use of standard programming techniques as well as new techniques unique to the Cloud. It will be based on Microsoft .NET, C# and Windows Azure, Microsoft’s public Cloud platform.”
You can download the slides from here.
Also, if you missed the talk at this Bar Camp I did a slightly longer version of the same talk at the Nashville Windows Azure User Group meeting in September. My son Steven Michael Zack, who runs Ranger 7 Studios in Nashville, videotaped it for us and you can view the whole talk here.
Please check it out, and also please do come to a future Nashville Windows Azure Users Group meeting and take advantage of community networking, local expertise and support.
