In a couple weeks, I’m off to Amsterdam and Gothenburg to speak at a pair of events. First, on January 22nd I’ll be in Amsterdam at an event hosted by middleware service provider ESTREME. There will be a handful of speakers, and I’ll be presenting on the Patterns of Cloud Integration. It should be a fun chat about the challenges and techniques for applying application integration patterns in cloud settings.
Next up, I’m heading to Gothenburg (Sweden) to speak at the annual Integration Days event hosted by Enfo Zystems. This two day event is held January 24th and 25th and features multiple tracks and a couple dozen sessions. My session on the 24th, called Cross Platform Security Done Right, focuses on identity management in distributed scenarios. I’ve got 7 demos lined up that take advantage of Windows Azure ACS, Active Directory Federation Services, Node.js, Salesforce.com and more. My session on the 25th, called Embracing the Emerging Integration Endpoints, looks at how existing integration tools can connect to up-and-coming technologies. Here I have another 7 demos that show off the ASP.NET Web API, SignalR, StreamInsight, Node.js, Amazon Web Services, Windows Azure Service Bus, Salesforce.com and the Informatica Cloud. Mikael Hakansson will be taking bets as to whether I’ll make it through all the demos in the allotted time.
It should be a fun trip, and thanks to Steef-Jan Wiggers and Mikael for organizing my agenda. I hope to see some of you all in the audience!
