Cloud computing is a major topic

  • potential speakers: Microsoft, Cisco,, Amazon?

Cloud computing is changing the way companies procure IT infrastructure. Utility computing will also impact individual and company to company interactions. The session will explore and highlight current effort to deliver standards-based Cloud application development environments. We want to discuss new and emerging software development methods taking advantage of the elasticity and inherent virtualization capabilities of the Cloud, social software development, and methods such as REST APIs, Mashups, etc.

We also suggest to have a panel discussion that will also include application security as this is a major issue in Cloud adoption.
