Maybe see you at London CloudCamp on the 21st January 2010

Note: Cross posted from IUpdateable from Eric Nelson.


I will be popping along to CloudCamp this Thursday. I’ve been to CloudCamp once before when it coincided with Qcon London when I was a speaker in 2009. But TBH I really didn’t pay much attention last time around as it was a) the end of a long day and b) I was only dabbling with cloud at the time.

On January 1st I switched full time to the Windows Azure Platform which means this time I will be paying attention 🙂

Find/avoid me as necessary 🙂


The agenda looks promising:

  • 6.00 – 6.10 pm Introduction to Cloud Computing and Cloud Camp
