Clive Howard recently recorded a podcast with Darren Smith from Salesforce.com on the topic of cloud platform development. Salesforce is one of the original cloud companies and the quintessential Software as a Service offering. They have offered developers a way to build on this platform through Force.com for many years. Through Darren’s work with this community he has seen for some time the challenges and benefits that developers have had when building on a cloud platform. With the recent launch of Salesforce1 and the acquisition of Heroku they are now taking this platform to mobile developers and beyond to the Internet of Things.
