Cloudy with a chance of revolution. Not since the Homebrew Computer Club has the industry seen such a climate of open innovation. The increasing sophistication of the mobile platforms such as WebOS, MeeGo, Android, Symbian plugged into the growing ubiquity of the Cloud offers an unprecedented opportunity for developers to build and deliver online services that could only be glimpsed 5 years ago.
And in case you haven’t noticed, HP is in the thick of this climate change. HP helps consumers and businesses focus on innovation by offering robust solutions based on HP inventions, open source software, and standards-based hardware. Join us in this session to hear how our recent acquisition of Palm, our focus on modular platforms integrating servers, storage, and networking, our expertise with open source cloud stacks, and our latest research into virtualization, security, and scalability of Linux and other components of cloud computing creates new opportunities for developers. Also, you might walk away with some cool shwag in the palm of your hand.
