At the Surge Conference in Baltimore, Maryland, GigaOM spotted an Apple booth on the trade show floor. Apple is usually not known for appearing at trade shows, which made this appear peculiar. The guy at the conference was hiring engineers to help with Apple iCloud. The Surge Conference focuses on scalability so it makes sense to recruit for iCloud there out of all of Apple’s services. Engineers from Pinterest, Yammer, and Facebook were giving talks at the Surge conference.
