Time for CloudFest Denver

February 8th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: CloudShare | Tags: , , , , , ,

Many of you may already be cloud computing experts.  Some of you, however, may be more like me, and just catching on to the cloud phenom.  The word “cloud” paints the lovely image of all of your things stored in the sky.  I don’t know about all of you, but I actually picture my own personal cloud that I can pull down at any moment to gather my information.  Well, let’s get real for a moment.

While that may be a nice picture, there’s a lot more to the capabilities of cloud computing than what I just described.  If you’re an IT professional you probably already know the time saving, cost saving, space saving, and collaboration properties of dev/test in the cloud.  But, if you’re new to this and you want to find out for yourself just how to implement cloud computing for your own company or even personal use, CloudFest 2012 in Denver will provide you with the valuable training you need.

Chris Riley, CloudShare’s own Product Manager and Evangelist, will be speaking at the conference on the many challenges of working with SharePoint that can be eradicated through our platform.  In his session, you’ll find out why Development and Testing in the cloud works, how to plan for it, and how to more reliably and rapidly grow your SharePoint deployment.
