Day 1 started off with a bang with the Database.com announcement. Database.com is a true database in the cloud, which means no hardware, no software, and it automatically scales. The 5 demo booths were full throughout the day with developers planning their next great idea in the cloud database. Brammo, the electric motorcycle, was the hot centerpiece of the floor, showcasing the capabilities of this robust data utility. Just wish we could have taken him for a spin!
It's hard to capture Cloudstock in words. 1 day event. 60+ sessions. Over 30 partners. 3000 developers. Embracing the open and free spirited Woodstock approach for developers, this meetup was not just about Force.com but rather many platforms and technologies coming together. We socialized, attended great sessions, competed in the hackathon, and walked away with a little more knowledge and appreciation to be part of a growing and dynamic community. Can't wait to see what happens next year.
Heroku joined the family this week. The Heroku announcement was huge, and welcomed by everyone. The demo booth felt more like a celebrity had arrived, full of crowds and questions. Many developers were being introduced to the power and elegance of the Heroku architecture at the event, maybe even developing their first Ruby app. Great to see such big welcome to the Heroku and the Ruby developer community.
Developer Lab: Force.com, Chatter and VMforce
Full of developers diving right into the newly updated Force.com tutorials, the Developer Lab was buzzing. It was great to see the variety of styles; some working solo, others working together with their peers, most leveraging the Force.com experts that were there to build their killer apps in the cloud. With the free candy, t-shirts, caps, and very cool Cheatsheets (Force.com, Chatter, and Security) and Workbooks (Force.com, Chatter, Visualforce, VMforce).
Questions answered, problems solved, bugs fixed. The 1:1 code consultations gave the opportunity to provide developers hands-on, guided experience of Platform technologies with our top engineers.
OnLive Cloud Arcade
OnLive Cloud Arcade when it was time to take a break, there was no place like the OnLive cloud arcade to get your game on. Don't be fooled by the chilled out bean bags, these host of games created some fierce opponents and tested even the best gaming skills.
Hitting up the VMware Lounge was a must. Whether it was to check out the VMware SpringSource, Code2Cloud, or learn more about the upcoming release of Project "Horizon" (a hosted management service for Saas, virtualized and published Windows applications), there was something for everyone.
Those needing a break from the sessions but still wanting something more found cool presentations on a variety of subjects at the Lightning Forum. Whether it was the latest-and-greatest on innovations or thought provoking subject of coding for non-profits, these less formal talks were friendly and a good way to meet the presenters.
Many took advantage of this time to get up close with our Partners and learn more about their innovations in the cloud. This was a great chance to network, learn about new products, and walk away with some cool ideas.
Learn, Relax, and Play
