In 2007, as “cloud computing” was working its way into the vocabulary of mainstream business, several major universities and corporations (including Google and IBM) began a large-scale cloud computing research project. This year, major events are being hosted that address the topic and its ramifications for high-tech businesses worldwide: GigaOm held their cloud computing-focused “Structure 08” conference last June, and this week, Microsoft’s annual Professional Developers Conference will be a forum for the announcement of Microsoft’s new cloud computing platform.
Here are some upcoming cloud computing events:
Fairmont Hotel, San Jose, CA
December 1-2, 2008
February 11, 2009
Metro Toronto Convention Center, Canada
May 17-22, 2009
