IEEE “Pragmatic Clouds” Presentation (2/24/10)

Tonight I presentated “Pragmatic Clouds” to the IEEE Central Texas Consultants Network Meeting.

The abstract was, “Cloud computing seems to mean everything! We’ll talk in specifics about how application development and delivery models are changing based on new “cloud” commercial models. We’ll also explore how the plumbing behind the curtains is changing to reflect these new models.”

In the presentation, I covered drivers for cloud business models and how it impacts creating applications for clouds. I also described how to write a future-proof application that can work for IaaS clouds today and PaaS clouds tomorrow.
