Build a Cloud Day Interview with Brian Proffitt

Posted by on in Events

build-a-cloud-dayToday, we continue our series of Build a Cloud Day interviews with Brian Proffitt, a man who needs no introduction if you’ve been reading about technology in the past decade or more. Brian has written for a long string of publications, most recently ReadWriteWeb and ITWorld.

Brian will be speaking later this week in Columbus, Ohio at the Build A Cloud Day ahead of Ohio LinuxFest 2012. If you’re in or around Columbus, be sure to sign up for a seat today and join us on Friday!

Q: Can you tell us a bit about your background, and what your interest is in cloud computing?

Brian Proffitt: I was born in a small Indiana town… wait, too much? Okay, okay, let’s try the short version: I am a veteran technology journalist and analyst with a strong interest in open source software. That’s a pretty strong connection to cloud computing right there, since much of the cloud technology in use today is or has roots in open source tech. For me, cloud computing ins one of the coolest implementations of Linux and open source technology.

Q: What will you be speaking about at Build a Cloud Day?
