Confirmed speakers and sessions
Presentations during a Webcafe are short, informative slots of 10 minutes. We’re using a timer so when it runs out, the speaker runs out of time! We have a few confirmed speakers already:
Scaling in the Cloud Thijs FerynEvangelist at Combell The Cloud is omnipresent and by now everyone knows what the Cloud is about. There are a lot of fancy implementations out there, but the practical use cases don’t get the attention they deserve. Scalability is one of these use cases. During my 10 minute talk I’ll illustrate how scalability is a crucial feature of Cloud hosting setups.

What is Microsoft Webcafe?
Microsoft Webcafe is a new free informal get-together for web and user experience professionals after work hours. The goal is to present a mix of news around Microsoft web related topics and give the opportunity for participants to present a project themselves.
