Cloud Foundry and Open PaaS at OSCON

by July 19, 2012

The Cloud Foundry team is at the premier Open Source conference, O’Reilly OSCON this week. What a difference a year makes! This time last year, the Cloud Foundry Open Source project and the idea of an open Platform as a Service (and PaaS generally) was a new concept to many developers. This year, there has been a clear buzz around clouds – particularly open cloud platforms –and sessions on these topics have been very busy.
Cloud Foundry had a number of sessions: Josh Long has been as popular as ever, talking about Spring and Cloud Foundry topics; Raja Rao DV delivered a masterclass in node.js on Cloud Foundry; and I hosted a birds-of-a-feather group to discuss the idea of messaging and integration in the cloud using technologies like RabbitMQ.
