I'll be giving this presentation at ApacheCon on April 7, 2014 and wanted to take this opportunity
to practice it in front of a captive audience. You can find my presentation slides at [Introduction
to Apache jclouds](http://www.slideshare.net/phymata/introduction-to-apache-jclouds).

the meetup](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nuON0zGVJI&t=40m00s) on [Apache jclouds at
Maginatics](http://gaul.org/talks/jclouds-at-maginatics/). I personally learned a lot from
Andrew's presentation like the wide variety of differences amongst object storage providers.
The engineering work that Gaul and the team from Maginatics have done around the BlobStore
portable API in jclouds is impressive.

a toast to Ignasi Barreraā€ˇ for his work in kicking off the jclouds website redesign. Thanks
Ignassi! And thanks to everyone who helped make it a reality!

end-of-life and has been a security bug ridden mess for Java. It's time to move on. We agreed
on a rough plan of action to move forward.
