Date & Time: June 3, 2009 at 12 PM EDT (duration: 45 mins.)

Cloud platforms - also known as platform-as-a-service - have introduced new development options which short-cut the time-to-delivery for development projects. Delivering on many of the promises of SOA, they make it easier to 'mash up' ready-made services into your applications - and also encourage a more iterative, collaborative development style that makes it much easier to work with business users during the development process -- thus delivering an application that's more closely aligned with business need, and one that's easier to maintain and modify over time. This session explores the new skills developers and IT managers need to learn to succeed with cloud development and examines the pitfalls to avoid when embarking on cloud projects.
