The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) is hosting the 10th Storage Developer Conference (SDC) in the Hyatt Regency in beautiful Santa Clara, CA (Silicon Valley) on the week of September 16th. As usual, Microsoft is one of the underwriters of the SNIA SMB2/SMB3 PlugFest, which is co-located with the SDC event.
For developers working with storage-related technologies, this event gathers a unique crowd and includes a rich agenda that you can find at http://www.storagedeveloper.org. Many of the key industry players are represented and this year’s agenda lists presentations from EMC, Fujitsu, Google, Hortonworks, HP, Go Daddy, Huawei, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, NEC, NetApp, Netflix, Oracle, Red Hat, Samba Team, Samsung, Spectra Logic, SwitfTest, Tata and many others.
It’s always worth reminding you that the SDC presentations are usually delivered to developers by the actual product development teams and frequently the actual developer of the technology is either delivering the presentation or is in the room to take questions. That kind of deep insight is not common in every conference out there.
Presentations by Microsoft this year include:
For a taste of what SDC presentations look like, make sure to visit the site for last year’s event, where you can find the downloadable PDF files for most and video recordings for some. You can find them at http://www.snia.org/events/storage-developer2012/presentations12.
Registration for SDC 2013 is open at http://www.storagedeveloper.org and you should definitely plan to attend. If you are registered, leave a comment and let’s plan to meet when we get there!
