On April 17-18 I was in Santa Clara mingling with the international SaaS crowd at SaaSCon. There, Eugenio and myself presented a session titled: Anatomy of a SaaS Application. The slides are available here. The goal of the session was to cut through the "marketing fluff" and look "under the hood" of a multi-tenant application, explaining the different architectural trade offs and implementation best practices (using the Microsoft platform) we gathered by building LitwareHR our sample application. Lee The with EntMag.com covered the session in this article.
Overall, the conference was good. Below some of my thoughts post conference (in no particular order).
I heard from the organizers that it is very likely that another SaaSCon will happen next year. Count me in! And let's see how many times multi-tenancy will be said then :)
