Virtual Event: Cloud Computing for Developers

Hosted by IBM and Amazon Web Services
October 1ST 2009, Eastern Daylight Time (EDT – NY)

10:00-10:30am Becoming a Cloud Programming Pioneer

Speaker: Doug Tidwell, Senior Software Engineer, IBM Emerging Technology group

Cloud computing is the most significant change in IT since the rise of the Internet. Despite all the hype
about cloud computing and its benefits, most developers haven't learned how to build applications with
the cloud in mind. In this session, we'll talk about the things you'll need to learn (and unlearn) as you
start to write cloud applications. Once you understand how cloud services work, you'll know how to
architect your application to make the most of the cloud.

10:30-Noon Cloud Computing with Amazon Web Services
Speaker: Mike Culver, Amazon Web Services Evangelist

You’ve heard all the hype about why the Cloud is the future – and most likely you have already checked
it out yourself. But what can you really accomplish, and why should you even care? In this session,
presented by Amazon Web Services, you will learn what AWS is all about, and why companies ranging
from the smallest startup to large Wall Street names all deploy in the cloud. You’ll also learn why
Amazon Web Services came together with IBM to offer you software. If you’ve been around Enterprise
software for any length of time, you know that “by the hour” is not a standard concept, although that's
one of the ways you can pay for IBM software in the Amazon Cloud; so to say that innovation was at
work is an understatement. This session will end with an extended Question and Answer period to
provide you direct access to key team members from Amazon Web Services.
12:00-1:00pm IBM DB2: Using the most flexible enterprise-class database on Amazon EC2
Speakers: Mark Wilding, Leon Katsnelson
IBM DB2 database software running on Amazon EC2 lets you get the most out of today's tough
economic climate that is charaterized by reduced budgets and freezes on capital expenditure. IBM and
AWS provide a lot of flexibility for cloud computing, including free DB2 AMIs, low cost by-the-hour
production-ready DB2 AMIs, and the ability to bring your existing DB2 licenses to the cloud. With
robust capabilities for the most demanding workloads, and tons of autonomic features, DB2 is ideally
suited for cloud environments. Join us to learn how to quickly develop and deploy new and existing
applications using DB2 and Amazon EC2. This session will walk you through the DB2 AMIs and
highlight some of the unique capabilities in DB2, including the new features in DB2 9.7 that make it
much easier to move applications from Oracle to DB2.
