Putting It Together, Letting Apps Lead the Cycle, TDD in the Cloud

Long Form


I'll be taking a deep dive into cloud architectures and how to build applications, generally at the PaaS level mixed with a little IaaS, to get people rolling with high velocity, high quality, and without the need to worry about the little things.


Want to learn about why PaaS and cloud computing is altering the very fabric of the development cycle? Want to know how to dive in with some abstractions and behavioral practices on the cloud, using PaaS, to bring apps, prototypes, and UX to market faster than anyone else? I’ll be touching on all of these things during this long form session. The sessions will step through these core concepts and ideas.

- How to get up and running using cloud computing technologies and specifically to take advantage of PaaS providers.
- How to bring UX designs and prototypes into a usable state even faster.
- How to bridge that gap between development, test, QA, user acceptance testing, staging, and production (or whatever environments…) without blowing the bank.
- How to scale, once the cycle is in place and continuous deployment is ready.

Speaking experience

I've spoken before huge groups and small groups, at OS Bridge last year (did an intro to cloud computing session) and commonly speak at user groups and events around the north west. See: http://compositecode.com/coding-community/speaking-presentations-workshops/
