This annual conference sponsored by Chariot Solutions drew an overflow audience in 2008 and returns in 2009 with expanded content for both a technical and an IT executive audience. For software developers, the conference will feature world-class speakers closely aligned with a wide range of application frameworks, including Spring and Ruby on Rails as well as Integration/SOA, Cloud Computing, and Web Applications.
For IT executives, Chariot has brought to the table real-world case studies on how new technologies are both lowering costs and driving business growth. Everyone attending this year’s Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise Conference will walk away with a better understanding of the latest trends in open source and Java, as well as insight into how these technologies can strengthen the enterprise IT foundation.
