Cloudstock conference set for cloud app developers

Google and Force.com are among sponsors of the event next month

Cloudstock, a technical conference dubbed "The Woodstock for Cloud Developers," is being held next month with backing from cloud computing players including Google, Force.com, and Amazon Web Services.

The free event will be hosted on December 6 in San Francisco. "Cloudstock is an entirely new event designed for one purpose: To bring the top cloud developers and the top cloud technologies together under one roof, to learn from each other, collaborate, innovate, and drive the future of cloud computing," the Cloudstock Web page says.

In addition to sessions and demos, the conference will feature "The Cloudstock Hackathon," in which developers will pit coding skills against each other and build solutions that bridge clouds.  

At the event, Google will be presenting on the company's cloud platform technologies and selling cloud applications in the Google Apps Marketplace, said Ryan Boyd, of Google Developer Team, in a blog post. "Google is a strong believer in the open technologies powering the Web, such as HTML5. Cloud computing is about powering innovations on the Web with platforms and services that make developers like you more efficient and allow you to concentrate on solving business problems."   

Other companies partnering on the event include Adobe, PayPal, VMware, and Yahoo Developer Network. The list of sessions features a presentation by Adobe on its Flex and Flash platform on the cloud; Amazon will discuss cloud computing using PHP. VMware will discuss its VMforce platform -as-a-service technology.

Absent from the list of Cloudstock partners, though, is Microsoft, which continues to promote its Windows Azure cloud platform and newly announced Office 365 cloud applications.

Registration for the event can be done at this Cloudstock sign-up page.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
