Spoke at Boston Code Camp #18 – Cloud Architecture Patterns for Building Cloud-Native Applications: align your architecture with the cloud’s architecture

What a joy to be part of Boston’s 18th Code Camp! First, many thanks to the organizing team and helpers:

And of course nothing would happen without support from the Sponsors:

Here is the abstract for my talk:

Just because we get an application to run on cloud infrastructure does ensure that it runs well. To truly take advantage of the cloud we need to build cloud-native applications. The architecture of a cloud-native application is different than the architecture of a traditional application. A cloud-native application is architected for cost-efficiency, availability, and scalability. We will examine several key architecture patterns that help unlock cloud-native benefits, spanning computation, database, and resource-focused patterns. By the end of the talk you should appreciate how cloud architecture is more demanding than you might be accustomed to in some areas, but with high payoff such as handling failure without downtime, scaling arbitrarily, and allowing aggressive cost-optimization.

All the concepts and patterns I spoke about are also discussed in my recently released book, Cloud Architecture Patterns:

Spoke at CT .NET User Group about Cloud Architecture Patterns for Building Cloud-Native Applications in Windows Azure

On October 9, 2012, I was pleased to speak to the Connecticut .NET Developers Group. It was really fun since the crowd was extremely engaged. 🙂 There was a lot of good back-and-forth discussion.

This was the talk abstract:
