In this session we will examine real examples of applications that have recently been ported to the Microsoft PaaS offering (Windows Azure) including how it was done. We will discuss the architectural principles, do’s and don’ts and examine what true scaling means from a developer point of view including database scalability, file I/O, session state management and more.

Seph is a new experimental language. It is based on pure differential prototype based object orientation, with immutability and polymorphic dispatch built in deep. Seph uses the new features in Java 7 to full effect, by compiling highly dynamic code to use method handles and invoke dynamic. It's got light weight threads and the mature concurrency primitives from Clojure.
The main design goals behind this project are
The compiler is being developed alongside with an IntelliJ IDEA integration, so the users will get IDE support as soon as they get the compiler (first public version is planned for the end of 2011).
