OOPSLA 2009 was over in a Flash

See you next year in Reno/Tahoe, Nevada where OOPSLA becomes a part of

Previous news:   Book Store Hours


State-of-the-art meets the state-of-practice...
Practitioners meet Researchers...
Software Engineering meets Programming Languages...

At OOPSLA 2009 we will:

That is just a sampling of what makes OOPSLA the conference of choice for software technologists—from recognized academics to undergraduate students, from industrial researchers to developers and managers, from the creators of technology to its users.

We are proud to offer you OOPSLA and look forward to sharing the experience with you this year in Orlando.


OOPSLA 2009 - Videocast 1 - Cloud Computing with Dr. Kristof Kloeckner of IBM Cloud Division

In this two part series, Dr. Kloeckner gives us an overview of Cloud Computing from a business, technological, as well as a research point of view.

First, he discusses the key applications for cloud computing as he hears them from his customers.  Some of these use cases include the so-called hybrid cloud deployments as well as clouds to address non-differentiating workloads.

He brushed on the social and governance impacts of cloud computing.  Especially in the context of current IT and the various challenges that they face on the Web.  In particular security and privacy.  The need for massively scalable environments for workloads such as analytics and surveillance (using massive amount of sensor data) make cloud computing especially attractive for a new wave smart applications.

From a technological point of view cloud computing resemble distributed computing with similar research topics.  Emerging programming models and application patterns especially solutions for scalability, multi-tenancy, and quality of service.  How to make programming such things easier?  How to evolve the JavaEE programming model to address these concerns.



Finally Dr. Kloeckner calls on the OOPSLA community to help address cloud computing best practices, patterns, and asset exchanges.  This is in the hope of forming communities to help advance the field.
