The conference intends to become an annual international event of bringing together a technology community to exchange knowledge, vision, and share best practices and success stories. Under the title, “Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Cloud Computing: Blueprint for the Future Enterprise”, this year’s conference will focus on the implications and opportunities unleashed by the convergence of SOA and Cloud computing.
WSO2 exemplifies what Sri Lankans can do when they dream big and follow through. When we were planning eSri Lanka, Sanjiva Weerawarana talked about Sri Lanka becoming a leader in open source software. That was the dream; Lanka Software Foundation was the follow through. We now are a significant force in open source. He then talked about a Sri Lanka based firm that would provide services in the open source middleware space. At close to 100 employees and on a rapid growth path WSO2 is the second dream realised. I am waiting for Sanjiva’s third dream,” said Prof. Rohan Samarajiva.
