I was attending the first M3 Conference last November when I started talking with a few buddies there about what we thought of M3. The attendance, sessions, and general “buzz” during M3 as people discussed, debating, learned, and compared the various mobile platforms was great! As guys with a passion for cloud computing, we were thinking that there really should be something similar to M3 but for cloud computing.
The goal with CloudDevelop is to be the Midwest’s premier conference for cloud technologies and application development. I feel it is important to point out that CloudDevelop is cloud vendor / technology neutral. CloudDevelop will feature sessions that cover all cloud platforms and services. By having a mixture of cloud computing vendors, technologies, and topics at CloudDevelop, the organizers feel that will provide a dynamic and engaging conference for all attendees.
If you would like to speak at CloudDevelop, I would encourage you to get your best Windows Azure, Amazon AWS, Heroku, AppHarbor, Google AppEngine, etc. session abstract ready and submit a few sessions today! Please submit sessions at http://clouddevelop.org/SubmitProposal.html. The call for speakers closes on May 10th.
CloudDevelop wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of sponsors. If you’re a cloud provider or tool vendor and would like to be a sponsor of CloudDevelop, please view the sponsor prospectus at http://clouddevelop.org/CloudDevelopProspectus2012.pdf to learn more about the opportunities available.
