The free event will be hosted on De. 6 in San Francisco. “Cloudstock is an entirely new event designed for one purpose: To bring the top cloud developers and the top cloud technologies together under one roof, to learn from each other, collaborate, innovate, and drive the future of cloud computing,” the Cloudstock Web page says.
In addition to sessions and demos, the conference will feature “The Cloudstock Hackathon,” in which developers will pit coding skills against each other and build solutions that bridge clouds.
Absent from the list of Cloudstock partners, though, is Microsoft, which continues to promote its Windows Azure cloud platform and newly announced Office 365 cloud applications.
