At BarCamp Tampa Code Camp, (http://barcampcodecamp2012.eventbrite.com/#), Peter expects to talk about some of the themes of his book, Business Innovation in the Cloud and how to execute on innovation in the 21st Century world of exponential and unpredictable change. Creativity and great ideas will always be important. Execution, however, is all when it comes to business innovation. Cloud computing is enabling innovation to take place faster and faster, and is removing a tremendous amount of friction from the marketplace for companies of any size. Collaboration enabled in the Cloud makes it easy for companies to work together. Innovation then becomes a systematic business process that is built for change.
About BarCamp: BarCamp is an international network of user-generated conferences (or unconferences) primarily focused around technology and the Web. They are open, participatory workshop-events, the content of which is provided by participants. The first BarCamps focused on early-stage web applications, and were related to open source technologies, social media, and open data formats.
About Code Camp: The CodeCamp event creates a new type of community event where developers learn from fellow developers. We also have developer related topics that include software branding, legal issues around software as well as other topics developers are interested in hearing about. All are welcome to attend and speak. CodeCamp was designed by and for the developer community and never occurs during working hours. Sessions will range from informal "chalk talks" to presentations with a mix of presenters speaking on various topics of current interest.
