Innovation in the Cloud with James Gosling
Wednesday, May 22, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (PDT)
Join us May 22 for a special presentation with guest James Gosling, chief software architect at Liquid Robotics, to discuss how cloud platforms are empowering innovation in business.
Cloud computing isn’t new per se. But the innovative ways some companies are leveraging the cloud to make the impossible possible is not only new, but pretty darn cool.
Liquid Robotics, an early adopter of cloud, is using the cloud to gather data about everything oceanic. From the geologic makeup of the ocean floor to the height of the waves during Hurricane Sandy, they’re delivering that data into the hands of researchers who never left their office.
Join us for a happy hour celebrating innovation in the cloud to learn more.
