The Amazon Web Services‘ Cloud Computing Conference was held at Hyatt Regency, New Delhi on 19th October. I was impressed by the organizing agencies’ skills because they personally tracked each and every registrant throughout registration process, and ensured a great attendance for the event.
That impression did not last long as I was denied entry into the event, even after getting registration confirmation many times. Delhi’s traffic was to blame for this, but hey: they did confirm my participation over phone and sms and email. Probably they called more audience than the capacity, anticipating many back-outs, since the participation was free of cost.
The step-by-step explanation of launching a quickly growing website was a reasonably good part of the event. Simone explained benefits of load balancing and CDN for a popular website. Other presentations like SAP, Wipro etc. looked more oriented towards self promotion and marketing than discussing insights of the cloud computing.
We came to know about a few AWS specific terms of cloud computing like S3, RDS and Elastic Map Reduce (Google says Map Reduce is not a buzzword for them anymore, but it has its own glaring advantages for sure) which also provided a high level idea of what AWS infrastructure looks like.
Their were altercations while the T-shirts were being distributed. Never mind: we in India always do it when there are freebies on offer.
Food was good.
Event Rating: 2.5/5
