Welcome to Tuesday at OSCON!

We have a packed schedule today, featuring tutorials, the Cloud and Scala summits, and in the evening, Ignite and the O'Reilly Open Source Awards.

The Cloud Summit, led by Simon Wardley, brings together the leading lights of cloud and open source. With the recent announcement by Rackspace of OpenStack, the topic has never been more timely. Expect energetic debate and exciting conclusions, with plenty of opportunity for participation.

Scala is a JVM-based language with a large and growing following. Credible with startups and enterprises alike, it's a modern way to use Java. Together with the authors of O'Reilly's Programming Scala, Alex Payne and Dean Wampler, we've assembled a full day exploring this new language and its ecosystem.

At 7pm tonight, we kick off with Ignite OSCON. Ignite is a fast-paced evening, packed with entertaining and inspirational presentations. Sandwiched in between the two halves of Ignite, we'll be handing out the Open Source Awards to people who have made exceptional contributions to open source.
