Unless you’ve been developing under a rock for the last year you’ve no doubt heard the deafening buzz in the development community around “the cloud.” But what is it? How can you take full advantage of it? Where do you begin? The cloud is more than a clever marketing buzzword. Much more.
In this session, Casey begins by guiding the audience on a high-level tour of general cloud-related concepts then takes a deep dive into the two major cloud computing platforms, Microsoft’s Azure and Amazon’s AWS, through a series of interactive exercises. In this session you will learn the fundamental concepts of cloud computing including the range of execution models that each of these platforms support.
The session will conclude with an audience-driven discussion covering special architectural considerations that should be taken when designing software for the cloud. By the end of the session you should know all that you need to hit the ground running creating massively scalable applications on these incredibly powerful cloud platforms. If you’re curious about the cloud then you owe it to yourself to attend this session.
