GoGrid, BEAR Data Solutions, NetApp, and ScaleArc have an exciting cloud meetup planned for next week (Wednesday, May 22, 2013) in San Francisco. In addition to intelligent conversation, free food and drink, and demos from a variety of companies whose products make cloud computing even better, we also have a fantastic featured speaker – James Gosling. (Register for the GoGrid Cloud Meetup here.)
Known affectionately as the “Father of Java,” one of the most popular and widely used programming languages in the world, James Gosling is currently the Chief Software Architect at Liquid Robotics (a GoGrid customer). He frequently shares his thoughts on creativity and innovation with everyone from university students to technology thought leaders, and is particularly interested in what makes a good idea successful. His impressive list of accomplishments and credentials include a BSc in computer science from the University of Calgary as well as a PhD in computer science from Carnegie-Mellon University. He was a Sun Fellow at Sun Microsystems where he was a lead engineer and did the original design of Java as well as implemented Java’s original compiler and virtual machine. In 2002, he was awarded The Economist Innovation Award, and in 2007, he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada, one of Canada’s highest civilian honors.
James’s company, Liquid Robotics, is an early adopter of cloud computing and its technology gathers all types of oceanic data via a wave-powered, autonomous marine robot, the Wave Glider®.
