Title:
Architecture Patterns for Scaling (in the cloud or otherwise)

Abstract:
Building applications that are “cloud-native” means cloud reliability and cloud scale. What are some of the key ideas and patterns for building cloud-native applications? This talk will cover scalability concepts and see how they can be applied to computation and data scaling. While the concepts are general – and apply even to non-cloud systems – examples in this talk will emphasize the Windows Azure cloud platform from Microsoft.

Bio:
Bill Wilder has been a software professional for over 20 years. In 2009 he founded the Boston Azure User Group, an in-person cloud community which gets together monthly to learn about the Windows Azure platform through prepared talks and hands-on coding. Bill is a Windows Azure MVP, an active speaker, blogger (blog.codingoutloud.com), and tweeter (@codingoutloud) on technology matters and soft skills for technologists, a member of Boston West Toastmasters, and has a day job as a .NET-focused enterprise architect.
