Google App Engine is an application development and cloud-hosting platform that lets users create apps to run Google's datacenters. In this 3-part tutorial, we'll give a 1-hour intro talk on cloud computing and App Engine, a 90-100 minute introductory codelab to get your feet wet with App Engine development, and finally conclude with about a half-hour intro to some of App Engine's newest features!
Ruby on Rails is a great framework for quickly building applications, but what happens when you are wildly successful and need to scale WAY up? This talk is a case study in the evolution of our Rails application from a monolithic "does everything" systems running on a hosted server to a service-oriented system running in the cloud.

Cloud computing scared the crap out of me - the quirks and nightmares of provisioning cloud computing, dns, storage, etc on AWS, Terremark, Rackspace, etc - until I took the bull by the horns. Come see me demonstrate tools and examples that will allow you to skip the headaches and cut straight to the cloud.
OpenStack started with an ambitious idea – to build a completely open, community driven standard for cloud storage and computing. Based at its core on the Rackspace Cloud Files storage platform and the NASA Nebula compute architecture, OpenStack consists of proven technology that is undergoing integration and development now on a community level. This development includes building and improving the APIs that allow developers to harness the power of the OpenStack technology.
In this session, you will learn the ins and outs of the OpenStack APIs from developers who have spent time in the trenches building useful projects with them. We will cover the OpenStack Storage API, the current state of the OpenStack Compute API, and the relevant differences between it and the Rackspace Cloud Servers API. You’ll learn tips and tricks, gotchas and workarounds, and have the opportunity to pick some brains.
We will be going over the API at a high level (primarily looking at JSON requests and responses), and code examples will be in Ruby and Objective C.

The weird thing about cloud computing is the programmer becomes the system administrator. What is involved in doing this if you are a LAMP person?
Come discuss about building and deploying Python & Perl application on ActiveState's cloud platform - Stackato; Diane Mueller (ActiveState) will give a brief overview, discuss lessons learned & best practices along with some of the challenges faced building on the Cloud Foundry Open Source project. Connect with other Stackato community members,discuss pros & cons, give feedback
As more and more computing moves into someone else’s data centre (i.e. the Cloud), users and companies are losing direct control over their data and processes. The risks they used to be able to mitigate by using Free and Open Source software are starting to become apparent.
So what can be done to continue to enjoy the software freedom that we have come to appreciate in the desktop computing world? Just like the task of building a completely FOSS operating system in the 1980s looked like an impossible dream, having a completely free online life appears to be quite a big task. Thankfully, many people are now tackling this problem and starting to build freedom-respecting options, one service at a time.
This talk will discuss an approach to building free network services and introduce Libravatar, a Django based project to provide a federated alternative to the Gravatar profile image hosting service, a centralised web service used by a very large number of social sites around the world.
In Prying Open the Cloud with Dell Crowbar and OpenStack, attendees will: find out about one of the fastest ways to stand up an OpenStack cloud, learn about the development, implementation and operation of Dell Crowbar, and hear how one company planned and implemented an OpenStack cloud for its business

This session will demonstrate an example scenario from Janrain and discuss the implications, benefits, and pitfalls of moving to a utility cloud computing architecture from a traditional co-located hosting environment.

Procfile is a new open source way of defining the process formation that defines an application. Heroku takes advantage of Procfile to offer an incredible flexible PaaS. Oren will take you through the major features of Procfiles and how Heroku uses it, including illustrating the flexibility, visibility and confidence that you can achieve with Heroku.
No matter which way you look at it PHP is still the most predominant language in use for the web. In the process of creating a scalable platform for PHP, Lucas Carlson came across many issues and discoveries. OReilly author Lucas Carlson takes you through the key issues you need to keep in mind before you write or port PHP code to a public cloud platform. Learn from his findings!

Tropo is a cloud communications platform for voice, SMS, and IM. In addition to the hosted service, we have opened the source of the core platform. In this session, we’ll talk about the lessons learned from running a cloud service and a parallel open source project. We did a lot wrong, and we got many things right. We’ll discuss what we’ve learned about product management, release management, marketing, and third party licensing.
