CloudCamp for Haiti! Organizers are conducting a virtual unconference next week and using it as fundraiser to raise money for the people of Haiti, victims of one of the worst natural disasters in modern history.
In an interesting twist, the organizers will use the online event to focus on how the cloud can be used in real-life recovery projects like the aid efforts going on in Haiti.
The cost to attend is $25. All donations will go toward relief efforts.
The online event is next Wednesday at 11 a.m. EST (1600 GMT), and runs until 2 p.m. with a half-hour wrap up following the sessions.
Want to help this good cause and join the conversation about cloud computing and relief efforts? Sponsorships go for as little as $50.
CloudCamp is an unconference where early adopters of cloud computing technologies exchange ideas. Discussions are open. The goal is to advance cloud computing. The event is for beginners and experts alike. End users, IT professionals and vendors are encouraged to attend.
