After nearly a year, it is starting to look like IASA New England is starting to gain some momentum. For those of you in the area, please register here for the next meeting (April 23), at which we’ll be hearing about Intuit’s Saas/cloud initiative from their QuickBase architect, Jim Salem.
Personally, I’m looking forward to hearing the details of their active-active load balancing…
I was sorry to have to miss the March meeting due to attending EclipseCon / OSGi DevCon, but I heard it went very well and that Hub did a great job.
At the meeting we also announced that Intuit and IBM were joining in and sponsoring the April and May meetings, respectively. This is excellent news for the NE architect community since it means we’ll have more support and access to additional excellent speakers for the meetings.
We also announced a panel discussion on cloud computing for June, a social event for July, and a regional event for this fall. Things are really starting to fall into place!
I’m happy about this since it will be great to have an active community of software architects in the NE area. I personally always learn something new at the meetings and have a great time discussing topics with the other members. Hope to see you on the 23rd!
