Speaking At November OCJUG Meeting

Posted in: Cloud Computing

Just a reminder that I will be speaking at the November meeting of the Orange Country Java Users Group (OCJUG) this Thursday (the 10th).

This presentation will be a variation of the presentation I did at JavaOne at the start of October on Amazon’s Elastic Beanstalk tool for creating PaaS environments for Java web applications.

Please refer to the OCJUG website (www.ocjug.org) for exact timing and location.

Dead-Simple Deployment: Headache-Free Java Web Applications in the Cloud (YouTube)

This is the full presentation I gave at JavaOne 2011 in San Francisco on October 6th, including screencast versions of all demonstrations.

Abstract

The cloud has promised a lot to Java Web developers but has delivered on only some of the hype. Many issues still exist that have the ability to kill many a project. Elastic Beanstalk, a Web service announced by Amazon in early 2011, takes the cloud to the next level for Java Web applications. It aims to eliminate the remaining issues the cloud presents. No hardware purchases? Check! Low setup costs? Check! No software installation? Check! Automatic resource scaling? Check! Resource monitoring? Check! This presentation takes a deep dive into Amazon’s Elastic Beanstalk service, including what problems it can help solve and opportunities it provides to deliver better Java Web applications.
