I'm at Cloud Camp Vancouver today. It's at the Discovery Parks Vancouver venue where we had Barcamp Vancouver 2009. The Twitter hashtag is #cloudcamp #vancouver. I'll be doing updates throughout the day.
Questions from Troy to kick off the day: How many are business oriented? 1/3 How many are technical oriented? 2/3
Dave Nielsen, CloudCamp founder, kicking off the day, talking about unconferences, Open Space concept, etc. Only about 1/3 of people have attended an "unconference" before.
Troy kicking things off with a RightScale lightning talk. Animoto launched on Facebook using RightScale scaling: "try and run around provisioning 4700 physical servers in 2 days" - no way to do it without cloud.
Took part in an expert panel to kick off the day. I talked about the question of what companies are doing "cloud" in Vancouver. I ended up putting up a wiki page - Vancouver Cloud Projects. Please add your own links to companies.
