Inside IT: Cloud Aware Applications “Code-a-Thon”

Earlier this year, Intel IT started conducting a series of  Cloud Aware “Code-a-Thon’s”. These were created in response to a skills gap around applications that were being written in a traditional way and ones that needed to be developed to take advantage of the cloud. This event is an inventive way to bring application developers together, introduce them to concepts of programming applications for the cloud and think in new ways. The intent is to have developers experiment with the cloud and be immersed for an entire day. In this podcast we talk to Cathy Spence, an Enterprise Architect in Intel IT. Spence tells us how the Code-a-Thon came about and what it takes to create an app for cloud. We’ll also hear from participants in a recently held Code-a-Thon at Intel’s Santa Clara headquarters.
