I mentioned the OFFSITE Conference over on Web2Ireland recently. It’s the frst time a major technology event is being held in West Cork and everyone in business in Munster and beyond should consider attending. It’s all happening next week, 27th September in Rosscarbery.
The title of my talk is “Building on The Shoulders of Giants: How Irish businesses can quickly deliver Enterprise-quality products through the smart use of software services”
The bulk of the talk will be about all the lessons we have learned over the past few years in running the LouderVoice service on a cloud infrastructure and how you could do similar.
Some of the topics I’ll be covering include:
- Building a SaaS business
- Amazon Web Services (EC2, EBS, EIP, RDS, S3, CloudFront, CloudWatch)
- IaaS vs PaaS (AWS vs Google vs Cloud Foundry vs Azure etc)
- Tying it all together with APIs
- Pricing and Cost Monitoring
- Robustness Cost-Benefit
- What’s Next?
- Big Data Opportunities
- Open Data Opportunities
This won’t be a geek-out session, it will be a business-centric talk where I hope those who are looking at the cloud get a lot of useful tips and cautions.
Let me know if there is anything in particular you would like to hear about.
