IBM is running a 3-day virtual event for developers focusing on Cloud Computing. I will be presenting a session on Prototyping and Developing Database Applications in the Cloud on Thursday April 8 at 2:30 EST.

Development and Test has emerged as the leading use case for cloud computing because it delivers maximum benefit with minimal risk compared to other cloud computing use cases. When it comes to DB2, we have it fully cloud enabled. I plan to talk about the benefits and the challenges of leveraging the cloud and practical approaches on how to get started right away and with little if any cost. I plan to do a lot of demos so anyone should be able to apply what they learn immediately after the presentation. Oh, and there will be about 10 minutes for questions.

To register, please go to http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/offers/techbriefings/details/cloudfordevelopers.html. it goes without saying that registration and attendance is free.
