I’m going to cry tonight, long and hard. I’ll do so as I remember and mourn Jeremy Geelan.

The show wasn’t called Cloud Expo then, of course – it was still known as Java Edge, a pioneering event that grabbed developers, architects, and enterprise IT users alike for twice-yearly confabs. Jeremy didn’t have a job there, or even a job offer. He was s...
