Can CloudCamp make it rain? That’s what organizers are hoping for as they put on CloudCamp Haiti on January 20th: The $25 registration fee, as well as sponsorship fees, go towards the Red Cross’s relief efforts in Haiti. Dozens have already registered, including legendary cloud presenters like Christofer Hoff and James Urquhart (check out the full guest list yourself).
What is a CloudCamp? It’s a more informal “unconference” where the agenda is set day-of by participants’ questions and attendees expertise. Curious about what the return on investment of a clouded data center? Worried about the risks of customer data on EC2? There’s a great chance you can get those questions and more answered just by showing up and asking, all from the comfort of your own home or office and directly from actual users and implementers with a minimal amount of vendor pitch-iness.
If you’re interested, it’s this Thursday starting at 11:00 a.m. ET, and you can get all the details on CloudCamp Haiti’s homepage.
