Surge 2010 Keynote & Speaker List
Discussing Scalability Matters…
…because scalability matters. Surge is more than an event, it's a chance to identify emerging trends and meet the architects behind established technologies. Learn from their mistakes and see how their victories can power your business forward.
Christopher Brown VP of Engineering, Opscode
Christopher Brown joins Opscode from Microsoft, where he was a Director of Engineering for the Edge Computing Network within Global Foundation Services. Prior to Microsoft, Christopher was a Founding Member, Architect, and Lead Developer for Amazon.coms Elastic Compute Cloud ("EC2"). He holds several patents in the areas of Internet routing, VM/runtime hosting, content delivery and cloud computing.
Design for Scale - Patterns, Anti-Patterns, Successes and Failures
Day 2 - 1:30 pm
This isn't your "Gang of Four". Christopher will discuss his experiences building Amazon's EC2 and the Opscode Platform, and the experiences of others designing large-scale online services. From API to access control, to deployment and configuration, we'll explore the techniques that work, and some that don't with an critical eye toward your next design.
