There is something going on in the air of Tel Aviv. I guess it is innovation. Great technical talents from all over are meeting to exchange ideas. Luckily for me, these are the areas I care most about: distributed computing and agile software development.
Yesterday the official part of the first cloud conference organized by the IGT was
finished. Excellent people from all around the world flew in for sunny
Israel in December to discuss the future of cloud technologies. It was all been recorded, so I guess soon enough all the information will be published.
Today, I’m going to present at the Amazon EC2 event in Tel Aviv. We’ve been doing some work with EC2 for a while, and some cool ideas come to mind when you think about the opportunities of cloud computing and GigaSpaces XAP.
Next week I’m going to present in the first Israeli Scrum conference. Some very big names are going to present as well, people like Ken Schwaber and Scott Ambler. Ken, is one of the founders of Scrum and Scott has some very practical ideas about agile architecture. Highly recommended. I’m going to talk about my experience in adopting scrum within GigaSpaces.
If you happen to attend one of these events, please stop by and say hello.
