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:
