In this session join a true Cloud enthusiast in pondering the opportunities in the Cloud. Let's talk about what makes the Cloud unique compared to non-cloud predecessors. We will look at the nature of Cloud Computing – service oriented with a focus on statelessness, low coupling, modularity and semantic interoperability. How does this relate to the Modern App? How do I get going if I'm not a 'Cloud enabled Developer' today and is this urgent? We'll talk about how to embrace the change. The session will underline the concepts with demos of services in the Windows Azure Platform.
