Salesforce.com is inviting all developers to convene for Cloudstock, a free one day conference covering cloud APIs, including the company's own service. The event will take place December 6 in San Francisco, a day before its popular DreamForce conference.
Here's how Salesforce describes the Cloudstock event:
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. This open, meetup style, free event will feature sessions, open labs, demos, socializing, and a hackathon, all delivered in a hip, developer friendly context.
Details are still in progress, but the so far the plan includes over 40 speaker sessions, demos, a hackathon and a gaming arcade--although I trust that the latest and greatest of Salesforce's platform, including the upcoming REST API, will keep many sufficiently entertained. This event is free for developers, with registration now available.
