"In this session, I'll cover the right and wrong ways to leverage, design, and build cloud-based systems and infrastructure.

Linthicum is the author of "Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence – A Step-by-Step Guide," published in 2009, which is the book that many regard as the "cook book" for cloud computing migrations and new system deployments. He has also authored and coauthored over 15 books on technology, and the Cloud Computing Blogger at InfoWorld.
