World of services: the software architecture that is eating the world
Marc Andreessen famously stated that "software is eating the World". In every industry the rules are being rewritten by companies leveraging new software tools and online services to their advantage. This is a massive, game-changing trend that will have transformative effects for decades to come. But how does it work? What makes certain tools and technologies more successful than others? What is the secret weapon of those most productive and disruptive IT organizations? Will this cambrian explosion of tools and services continue exponentially, or will it converge towards a handful of dominant platforms? Join Solomon Hykes, founder and CEO of dotCloud and a pioneer of the PaaS space, in an exploration of the architectural blueprint behind the biggest technology shift since the industrial revolution.
