Keynote Address: Hybrid Cloud & the Government IT Revolution

DATE:            

Tuesday, Dec. 17 from 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. EST

SPEAKER:      

Sinclair Schuller, CEO, Apprenda

OVERVIEW:    

The world's largest companies and governments are being tasked with an extraordinary challenge: To become more efficient in their IT practices while writing the modern innovation that is cloud computing. Seemingly at odds, the idea that you can spend less money on your IT infrastructure while achieving new levels of innovation in how you build and leverage software are perfectly compatible. This keynote will walk you through how the world of government and IT has changed how the expectations and pressures have increased, and how government IT is the most likely candidate to take advantage of new revolutions in cloud computing to succeed.



SESSION:   

Workshop: Unified Datacenter with Hybrid Cloud and Platform as a Service

DATE:          

Tuesday, Dec. 17 from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. EST

SPEAKER:    

Matt Ammerman, co-founder and vice president of client services, Apprenda

OVERVIEW:    

Just as private enterprises and government agencies are realizing the amazing potential of building and delivering services in the cloud, the idea of hybrid cloud appears. What is hybrid cloud? What are the reasons, technical and otherwise, that hybrid cloud exists? What types of apps run on a hybrid cloud?  In this workshop we'll explore the life of a software developer in a hybrid, or unified, datacenter environment by creating, deploying, and scaling a real world application.



SESSION:      

Ignite Talk: Transitioning to New Programming Approaches in Business Software

DATE:            

Wednesday, Dec. 18 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. EST

SPEAKER:     

Ed Sprenger, senior software developer, Apprenda

OVERVIEW:    

At Apprenda, we recently transitioned from Java to Scala for future development of our JVM-based components, and this decision presented serious challenges to our team. This talk will cover some of the reasons why we did so, some of the benefits and difficulties of the decision, and examine the greater picture of how and why developers have historically adopted newer languages and idioms in spite of the costs of doing so.
