Google selects GoGrid for its Cloud Computing Framework

Justin Kitagawa, lead front-end developer for GoGrid noted, ''When we started the GoGrid project, we wanted to push the boundaries of both front end and backend technologies. We were heavily influenced by Google Maps, the new Yahoo! Mail client, and several other state of the art AJAX applications. We wanted to have a thick client feel in the browser but with the performance of a thin client. Thick clients tend to require a much larger download and overhead, yet provide a richer experience, while conversely thin clients are much faster but less engaging visually.''

GoGrid is being showcased on the GWT Featured Project Page. GoGrid's rich, interactive graphical user interface (GUI) is built using the Google Web Toolkit (GWT), an open-source Java development framework which enables GoGrid to provide a quick, responsive and interactive user experience. GoGrid is nominated for Best Virtualization Solution for the LinuxWorld 2008's Product Excellence Awards.

The Google Web Toolkit (GWT) allowed GoGrid developers to code, debug and test strong software development best practices and produce a fast, rich, friendly User Interface. GoGrid launched the Cloud Infrastructure product first with a Graphical User Interface and later added an API (Application Programming Interface).

Michael Sheehan, Technology Evangelist at GoGrid added, ''We felt that it was important to reduce the barrier to entry first, and extend the programmatic functionality to developers and system administrators with the introduction of the API later. The use of GWT allowed our developers to be able to do much more with fewer errors, delivering a more robust and graphically pleasing experience to the end-user.''

Many cloud computing providers have chosen to make their offerings visually complex or offer no Graphical Interface whatsoever. GoGrid released its Cloud Computing Infrastructure offering in March 2008, solely with the Graphic Interface because no other providers had looked at delivering ease of use AND control in the cloud at the same time

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
