Today, at the Microsoft Professional Developer Conference (PDC) in Los Angeles, Microsoft announced the release of version 4.0 of the.NET Micro Framework, but also that they are open sourcing the product and making it available under the Apache 2.0 license, which is already being used by the community within the embedded space. The .NET Micro Framework,a development and execution environment for resource-constrained devices, was initially developed inside the Microsoft Startup Business Accelerator, but recently moved to the Developer Division so as to be more closely aligned with the overall direction of Microsoft development efforts.

Live From Stockholm, Ruv I Molnet

I've been hanging out the last couple of days in Stockholm, Sweden, the city built on stocks, an island (holm) in the midst of a marsh. It's been cold and snowing, but the conversations have been great. Because I live in Toronto, people here in Sweden seem to keep asking me if I know Mats Sundin, formerly the captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs Hockey team, whom interestingly enough I have met a few times. .

I'm happy to be able to disclose today that the Federal Government of the United States released its cloud computing RFI earlier this afternoon.

Gartner Includes Enomaly in New Cloud Computing Reports

We seem to be on roll lately at Enomaly. I'm happy to announce that Enomaly has been included in two new Gartner reports on Cloud Computing. I'd like to personally thank Daryl Plummer at Gartner for the honor of including our Elastic Computing Platform as an example. I found the report on Cloud 'Capacity Overdraft' particularly interesting. In the report Plummer does a great job of outlining the benefits of one of the key value propositions of cloud computing -- the ability to increase or decrease service capacity on demand and to pay for only what you use. This is commonly refer... (more)

The United Nations of Cloud Computing

With all the recent buzz around cloud computing within various governments around the globe there is one major international organization notably absent from the discussions -- The United Nations. I thought I'd take a moment to briefly explore some of the opportunities for cloud computing within the UN. To give a little background, the UN's stated aims is to facilitate cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress, human rights, and achieving world peace. I'm the first to admit that cloud computing can do a great many things, but ... (more)
