What to see at #cloudstock

Cloudstock puts us all into a very challenging situation. At every minute, there are 5,000 awesome developers to speak with, and up to 12 parallel sessions. The bottom line is–if you are from this world–you will miss most of them. So where to go? Here's my list of the sessions I want to be at.

9:30am - 10:15am
Amazon, Google, LinkedIn, mongoDB, force.com, and Engine Yard in the same slot? Oh my. Based on what I know about the cloud apps and infrastructure already, I'd skip Amazon Web Services introduction and Google introduction. There's a lot of online stuff available about mongoDB and force.com, so LinkedIn is my winner.

10:30am - 11:15am
Jakub is talking about GoodData APIs and developer tools in his talk called One Stop Shop for Analytics. I would like to know more about Heroku but I'll go to Introduction to Bulding Apps with Twilio.

11:30am - 12:15am
This is easy, I need to get some enlightenment before the lunch, so Apigee it is: Your API Sucks.

1:15pm - 2:00pm
Apigee one more time? Or Box? Yahoo? This is not decided yet. Most probably Thinking outside the API hosted by Box. Interaction of platforms is something I want to hear about.

2:15pm - 3:00pm
This is very easy. I need to be at BI Platform as a Service because I talk there. Do you want to know what I'll be talking about? Check out my mindmap.

3:15pm - 4:00pm
Another difficult slot: Yahoo, CloudKick, Twilio, and Heroku together. After the whole day in Moscone, I would need some air, and Yahoo's Managing a Cloud: The View from 30,000 Feet will give me exactly that.

As you can see, Cloudstock will make my day. And–I will not be participating in Hackathon. I have no idea how the hackers among us will be able to code and listen to the sessions at the same time.

You can tell me on Monday.
