Intro to Scaling your Web App on the Cloud with AWS (for frontend developers) Part 1

Intro to Scaling your Web App on the Cloud with AWS (for frontend developers) Part 1

In this talk we distill 1.5 years of building and scaling web applications on the biggest and oldest cloud provider: Amazon Web Services. We discuss the various moving parts of AWS and how they're beneficial, some open-source counterparts that you can mix and match with, and how to set things up the right way from the start so that you won't end up with a big mess a year down the road. Though we will touch upon advanced topics such as Autoscale and Elastic Load Balancer, this talk is geared toward front-end developers who want a better understanding of what cloud environments actually are and how to properly harness them. Part 2 coming October 2013.
