Microsoft has one, Amazon has one, but it turns out that there are a lot of different developer-focused cloud environments out there. Sometimes it's exactly what you need to get your project going quickly – assuming you know it exists. This session will present an overview of the variety of different cloud providers; many taking wildly varying approaches to what developers need. You'll leave with a series of ideas to explore the next time the boss says, "We need to move to the cloud!"

You will learn:

  • Why the cloud is big
  • The pros and cons of cloud computing
  • How several cloud providers stack up against one another
