Building Apps with Cloud Services by Chris Richardson, Founder Cloud Foundry

We're going to be combining our meetup this month with Gary Gaessler's "All Things Cloud" group. Here's the link to the actual meetup event page: http://www.meetup.com/All-things-Cloud-PaaS-SaaS-PaaS-XaaS/

Cloud computing isn’t just about application deployment. There are also a growing number of cloud-based web services that you can use to develop your application. One of the most well known is Amazon’s Simple Storage Service. But there are many others including web services for messaging, relational and NoSQL databases, email and telephony. Using these services allows you to build highly scalable applications without the pain and cost of having to develop and operate your own infrastructure. In this presentation, you will learn about the benefits and drawbacks of these Web services; their typical use cases and how to use them. We will describe a location aware, telephony application that is built using cloud services. You will learn about strategies for building resilient, fault tolerant applications that consume cloud services.

Chris Richardson is a developer and architect with over 20 years of experience. He is a Java Champion and the author of POJOs in Action, which describes how to build enterprise Java applications with POJOs and frameworks such as Spring and Hibernate.

Chris is the founder of the original CloudFoundry.com and now spends his time investigating better ways to develop software and evangelizing Cloud Foundry. He has a computer science degree from the University of Cambridge in England and lives in Oakland, CA with his wife and three children.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
