That was a great information. Yes, by attending the conference of the Particular industry we can gather more knowledge over it. By the way have you heard about Cloud Computing Conference 2010 which is my first conference where I have gathered more information and knowledge on Cloud Computing and its technologies. Cloud slam 2010 is the 2nd annual and virtual conference on Cloud Computing and its technologies I got a good opportunity to meet and talk with the world's leading experts of Cloud computing. I came to know about the Conference through http://cloudslam10.com
