What a joy to be part of Boston’s 18th Code Camp! First, many thanks to the organizing team and helpers:
- Bob Goodearl – Among his many contributions, Bob built the Code Camp web site using Windows Azure – and will come to Boston Azure on Thursday November 15 to tell us about his experience in doing so.
- Ben Day – @benday – ALM / TFS Expert and TDD Nerd
- Chris Pels – Co-Leader of DevBoston with Ben Day, Arch/Dev
- Chris Bowen – @chrisbowen – Microsoft Developer Evangelist
- Jim O’Neil – @jimoneil – Microsoft Developer Evangelist
- John Zablocki – @johnzablocki – Couchbase Developer Advocate
- Patrick Hynds – @patrickhynds – Security Guru

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

- I am particularly intrigued by the ApprendaCloud.com (“Built for Devs” and “Free to use”) from sponsor . .. Apprenda offers a private cloud PaaS solution focused on .NET applications.
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:

- If you do read the book and find it of value, I’d very much appreciate you considering a short review on Amazon, O’Reilly, or Barnes & Noble.
