Hear from IT leaders, industry experts and developers at the defining event that brings together the entire cloud computing community.
Founder and Chief Scientist, Joyent
Jason is the Founder and Chief Scientist at Joyent, and served as it’s CTO for the company’s first 6 years. Having moved on from direct management of our product, engineering, operations and support groups, Jason’s group is responsible for research and advanced development, technical outreach, evangelism, consultative efforts for partners and business units, and manages Joyent’s intellectual property portfolio including involvement in open source projects, licensing, technology transfer, assessments of potential partnerships, mergers and acquisitions. He was once referred to as a “Renaissance engineer” by ZFS creator Jeff Bonwick, and has always used “computers” to solve real problems: Starting with ab initio molecular orbital calculations using VAX/VMS machines, and moving on to small molecule design and protein docking while earning a BS and MS in Chemistry and Biochemistry at UCLA and a PhD in Molecular Pathology at The Burnham Institute and UCSD School of Medicine. Jason taught at the university level for more than a decade, is a prolific speaker and author and a highly-regarded expert on scalable systems. He serves as the Outside Director of the WordPress Foundation, frequently blogs at Joyeur, and most often can be found on twitter when not flying across an ocean in an aisle seat. He lives in San Francisco with his wife and daughters.
Storage matters, and despite the cost of storage coming down all the time operating at scale means that how you store your data and what data you store is becoming increasingly important. With a focus on NoSQL and cloud storage this workshop dives into the history of web architectures, how they've evolved, and where they are going to. Finally the workshop will dive into Amazon S3, Redis, & Basho's Riak datastore.
