So here is the first out of few of my recordings… the Scalability discussion.

So you think you heard enough of Visual Studio, Silverlight & C# 4.0 at the Microsoft Developer Academy 4 (Israel) and you are ready for the real world ???
Think Again !
Alt.NET Spring (#3) [Israel] will take place on this Thursday and Friday.
( 25-26/03/2010 )
About the format:
The goal of ALT.NET conferences is to have community discussions and knowledge sharing between the community members. During the first day of the conference, the planning stage, attendees will be able to offer sessions / request sessions on issues close to their hart. By the end of the planning stage we will have an agenda for the following day.
The conference day will include multiple discussions at each one of the discussion slots, discussion can take place with 2 people or with a room full of people. There is no need to stay till the end of the session… if you feel that you do not contribute to a session you can leave and attend another session of your choice.

I would like to thank everyone who attended the first meeting of the IASA Israel chapter.
By the end of the meeting we passed a feedback form among the ones who participated, I would like to share with you the summary of the feedback.
One of the main pillars of IASA is to group architects together while keeping technology and vendor agnostic, the first question on the feedback from was aimed to map the technology background of the participants in order to see if we managed to capture .NET architect, Java architect & C++ architect in the same room.
The results are that 57% of the attendees were .NET Architect, 57% of the attendees were JAVA Architect, 16% of the attendees were C++ Architect and 22% PHP,Flex,Django, Ruby, Python.
The second question that we asked was where did you hear about the event ?
Here we received that 89% heard about it on LinkedIn, 5% heard about it over a blog (and here I assume it was my blog post on blogs.microsoft.co.il/blogs/ohad) and 16% heard about it from a friend.
Each one of the attendees answered that the event matched his expectation which a great feedback for us as the event also scored a score of 4.83 (1 – worst event ever… 5- great event…)
Another interesting question that we asked was to figure out what would the participants be seeking in joining IASA Israel. 84% would be interested in networking, 78% self-development, 57% resources, 43% gaining a certification, 38% training.
When we asked if participants would be interested in taking an active part in our meetings we received that 81% would be interested and 5% answered that they might be interested.
The feedback from also was used to gather ideas for future activities and we will open another discussion about these.
The first public meeting of the International Association of Software Architects Israeli Chapter will take place on this Thursday !
The meeting's goal is to introduce IASA and its offerings, and to initiate the Israeli chapter of IASA.
During the meeting we will discuss the objectives and roadmap of the IASA Israeli chapter, and how it can advance the Software Architecture profession in Israel.
Following the introduction we will host an interesting presentation “Architecting for the Cloud” given by Danny Cohen, Architect at Microsoft Israel.
Please note that the given lecture plus IASA future activities are not technology specific related and address both .NET and Java software architects.
