heritage. It has also been featured in numerous movies including
No Country for Old Men and the unforgettable Red Dawn.
Looking Backward –
Patterns From the Future
In 1887 Edward Bellamy
published Looking Backward. 162 “Bellamy Clubs” formed, across the
US—people gathering to discuss the ideas in the book and propose
means and actions that would make them a reality.
This year, ChiliPloP
attendees will work on something similar—taking “A Different Kind of
PLoP” to a new dimension. Please Join Us!
Annual ChiliPLoP features "hot topics" for experienced folks to
gather and tackle issues. Participants must choose one hot topic and
register with the workshop organizer. How do you do this? Write an
email to one of the organizers requesting that you be included in their
Hot Topic discussion. If you are accepted, you will receive an email
from your Hot Topic leader with the registration link.

Cloud Computing Patterns
Through the use of cloud computing, providers and customers alike may
benefit from economies of scale, reduced provisioning times, and
flexible scaling of cloud applications. To benefit from this powerful
computing environment, application architects, however, have to respect
the specific properties of clouds: /elasticity/ -- the ability to adjust
resources numbers assigned to an application flexibly and on demand;
/pay-per-use/ -- only the reserved resources are billed to customers;
/standardization/ -- the runtime environment of cloud applications
consists of reusable services, middleware platforms, and virtualized
hardware; /resource sharing/ -- resources in the cloud are shared
between multiple customers...Cloud offerings provide infrastructure,
platform and as a Service. If these services are used by cloud
applications they become highly dependent on the interfaces and behavior
of these offerings...
