Tonight I had the honor of being a guest lecturer at a Boston University graduate cloud computing class – BU MET CS755, Cloud Computing, taught by Dino Konstantopoulos.
The theme of my talk was Architecting to be Cloud Native – On Windows Azure or Otherwise. The slide deck I used is included below.
- Building Cloud-Native Applications – 21-Mar-2013 – Bill Wilder (blog.codingoutloud.com) – BU MET CS755
- Much of the content draws from my Cloud Architecture Patterns book.
Night class is tough. Thanks for a warm reception – so congratulations and many thanks to those of you able to stay awake until 9:00 PM (!).
I hope to see all of you at future Boston Azure events – to get announcements, Join our Meetup Group. We are also the world’s first/oldest Azure User Group. Here are a couple of upcoming events:
- Wednesday March 27 Boston Azure meeting with two talks: (a) Managing Applications in the Cloud, featuring an APM expert, and (b) expecting shortly to add an opening speaker by an Azure team member in from Redmond.
- Saturday April 27 Boston Azure is participating in a Global Windows Azure Bootcamp – an all-day, hands-on session where you get practical, hands-on-the-keyboard experience working with Windows Azure, combined with explanatory talks. Food is provided so you can stay focused on Azure!
Feel free to reach out with any questions (twitter (@codingoutloud) or email (codingoutloud at gmail)) — especially if it will be “on the midterm” – and good luck in the cloud!
