Software Architecture & Platform SIG: Cloud storage for app developers



  • Dropbox: Cloud storage for app developers
    In this session, Steve will give an overview of cloud storage and the storage challenges faced by app developers. He'll then show how Dropbox addresses these challenges with examples from the Dropbox API, including the new Datastore API. A datastore is essentially a NoSQL database stored inside a user's Dropbox, with all the cross-platform/cross-device syncing magic of Dropbox.

    Steve Marx is a Developer Advocate for Dropbox
    , helping developers make better applications with the power of Dropbox's platform. Prior to joining Dropbox, Steve founded and Site44, which uses Dropbox's API to turn Dropbox folders into websites. Previously, Steve spent 10 years at Microsoft working on developer platforms, most recently Microsoft's cloud platform, Windows Azure.
