SIG Chairs: 


  • There are some seriously awesome folks in town for DeployCon/CloudConnect. And because of that, I'm organizing a Hackathon with Krish from Rishidot and some PaaS vendors. Please read on. BTW, If you want a free pass to DeployCon, please contact me. - Dave Nielsen


    The Future of Cloud is here. No really! Four of the Leading PaaS Experts will be on hand this Tuesday evening to show you how to get started with their PaaS solutions. Cloud Foundry, Cloudsoft, Openshift & Tier3 will give 5 minute demos, then you can choose one (or more) to get started with.

    Prizes (see bottom of page for complete details):

    • Individual Prizes will be given by the PaaS vendors to developers who build apps on each platform.
    • A Grand Prize will be given to the developer(s) with the best start to an app built that night. Prize will be a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2
