    CQRS and Windows Azure: A scalable architecture for the Cloud

    CQRS. A confusing jumble of letters? Well, yes. CQRS stands for "Command Query Responsibility Segregation", and is an architectural pattern which is rapidly gaining popularity. It offers clear guidance on how to build highly scalable systems that embrace asynchronous operations.

    In this talk we'll look at what CQRS is, how it lives up to the promises, and what kinds of systems would benefit from this approach. And then we’ll take the pattern and see what it takes to implement on top of Windows Azure.

    Reaching the Tipping Point in Energy Monitoring

    Monitoring your Energy Footprint

    Smart Devices and information systems to help people make better choices about how they use energy are in the early stage of adoption. While many home energy monitoring solutions have been introduced in recent years, no products or services have emerged that have brought about a significant change in consumer behavior. While many devices are technologically sophisticated or cool to look at it seems there is still a need for new innovations and better ways to motivate users to make a lasting change in their energy footprint. The challenge for product developers and entrepreneurs is the development of a comprehensive energy monitoring system for homes that is compelling, easy to use and effective.

    The Prius dashboard is a good example of a system that is making a real difference in consumer behavior. By providing information to a user on mileage and energy performance it is motivating people to change their driving style. We need to explore ways in which we can have a similar impact on managing one’s personal energy lifestyle. How do you create energy monitoring devices with intuitive interfaces and automatic functions that customers can easily integrate into their daily life? How will consumers be informed about what is possible and how will energy utilities, governments, agencies, or retail channels work to supply the demand? What other issues must be overcome before we see mass adoption of smart energy management devices. We will explore these issues and hear from manufacturers of existing products so that participants can leave with a better understanding of energy monitoring opportunities and challenges.

    TOPIC: Information Overload and Managing the Flow: Effectiveness and Efficiency As developers, we are asked to absorb even more information than ever before. More APIs, more documentation, more patterns, more layers of abstraction. Now Twitter and Facebook compete with Email and Texts for our attention, keeping us up-to-date on our friends dietary details and movie attendance second-by-second. Does all this information take a toll on your psyche or sharpen the saw? Is it a matter of finding the right tools to capture what you need, or do you need to unplug?

He is a member of Team Mole that delivered the Mole Visualizer for Visual Studio to the world. He is the author of the very popular XAML Power Toys; loves WPF and Silverlight LOB and is developing a passion for Windows Phone 7 and ASP.NET MCV. You can read his blog at: http://karlshifflett.wordpress.com/.

    Adam Kinney is a creative developer with a strong focus on UI technologies including HTML, CSS, Canvas, Processing, Flash, WPF and Silverlight. He enjoys working in the space between design and development teams enabling the best results from both sides.

How is it different than traditional IoC containers, and what are some scenarios where you would use one over the other, or even both at once? How do you use MEF, and what are some potentials gotchas and considerations for implementation?

    In this session learn all this and more. In fact, since nothing beats writing code to learn, bring a laptop with VS2010 RTM installed and help me build a composite application in real-time!

    TiE Oregon: Semiconductor Entrepreneurship - Opportunities & Challenges

    What are the challenges facing semiconductor startups in today’s environment?

    Is it enough to have developed a great technology?

    Historically, semiconductor startups have had massive development costs & long development cycles. A fabless semiconductor has to typically raise > $50M with a development and time to volume cycle that lasts 3-4 years or more. Has this changed in the light of current advances in technology?

    Founders of semiconductor startups often come from an engineering background. What business challenges do these founders face?

    Our panel, constituted of Steve Sharp, Chairman Triquint & past CEO of Triquint Semiconductor, Howard Bubb, CEO Ambric & Manpreet Khaira, CEO Avnera will address these and other important issues related to the viability of the fabless semiconductor startups in the new millennium.

    The panel will be moderated by Scott Keeney, CEO & Co-founder nLight, a manufacturer of semiconductor lasers

    TiE Oregon: Energy Solutions for the Developing World

    Bringing cost effective energy to the Billions living in primitive conditions

    Over 1.6 billion people, upwards of 30% of the global population, are without access to electricity. Electricity advances developmental factors such as small business development, extended working hours, access to communications, enhanced education levels and rural development. Energy can improve life of millions.

    In developing countries access to energy remains constrained by factors such as limited access to well adapted affordable technology, fragmented small markets, prohibitive taxes and limited financial resources. On Dec 14th , at the Copenhagen Climate conference the Obama Administration announced a $350 million dollar initiative dubbed “Climate REDI” to promote clean energy technologies in developing countries.

    Join us on March 17th for a discussion with our expert panel, on what kind of innovations in products, finance, supply and service can ensure reliable & affordable energy to the billions of poor across the world.

    Our 2 presenters Michael(Kipp) Baratoff, Principal, Equilibrium Capital & Patrick Maloney, Program Director, Lemelson Foundation have been fully immersed in this space, having been engaged with social entrepreneurs over the course of their careers. Lemelson Foundation awarded an energy grant to Selco India for it’s Incubation Center and Innovation Department to develop new products and new business models to solve key problems for energy consumers. The SELCO Solar Light Private Limited (SELCO India) is already an important provider of solar systems and cook stoves in southern India, with products that allow rural families to increase their household income while reducing the environmental and health risks of higher-cost kerosene lamps and inefficient stoves.

    Our event organizer, TiE Oregon Clean Energy SIG chair, Ravi Sinha, is the Chairman of Choice Solar India Pvt Ltd., company engaged in creative distribution of energy solutions to India's marginalized residents.

    Bill Campbell, our moderator for the evening is also a Principal at Equlibrium as well as a TiE Oregon Charter Member and Board Member.

    They will bring an insight into problems, economics, delivery & growth of energy solutions.

    This event is also a continuation of our theme “Serving the 6 Billion” on which we launched TiE Oregon in 2007. The keynote (watch the video on our website) speaker at the launch was C.K Prahalad, Paul & Ruth McCracken Distinguished University Professor of Corporate Strategy at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business, a globally recognized business consultant, who gave a stirring speech about the Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid.

    It centers on the proposition that the world's poor can be the engine of the next round of global trade and prosperity and can be a source of innovation.

    Illuminating the Ongoing Revolution in the Software Industry

    Illuminating the Ongoing Revolution in the Software Industry Date: Thursday, July 24, 2008 Time: 9:30am-11:30am

    As a Celebration of the SAO Social Network Millennial Milestone and to Thank all of our Members, SAO and Intel present Dr. Timothy Chou, Author, “Seven::Software Business Models” and “The End of Software”

    The software industry is a little over 25 years old, barely a blip in the history of science and technology. Yet in that short time major companies like SAP, Microsoft, Oracle, Google, eBay and Amazon have evolved. Seven is the story of the seven major business models we’ve seen in the software industry. More importantly, Seven is a story told from the experiences of some of the major players to inform those in the industry of lessons learned. Successes and failures, triumphs and defeats, Seven is focused on helping everyone in the software industry be prepared for the next major shifts in this dynamic and important industry.

    Timothy Chou, Author, "Seven; Software Business Models" & "The End of Software" Timothy Chou (the former President of Oracle on Demand) has over twenty-five years of experience in the technology business. Chou has been recognized as an industry visionary on the evolution of the software industry from the traditional model to Software as a Service (SaaS). Seven is a follow on book to The End of Software which predicted the rise of software delivered as a service. Now that this transition is happening Seven provides a framework for the producers and consumers of software to take the next steps.
