Programming Class for Amazon Cloud

We will go through two software programming exercises. First we will construct a java application that can read and write files from Amazon’s S3 - a cloud based storage service.  The second application we will write is a java app that starts and stops a EC2 virtual instance running linux.

Amazon Web Services has graciously given us service credit, so we will be able to use their services for free during these two hours!

This class is a follow up to the “Cloud Computing for Makers” class held in early March.

Amar Zumkhawala, the instructor, is an independent programmer with many years of professional java development experience at several organizations, including Amazon.com.

Requirements: a computer that can run Eclipse and a minimum of JDK 1.5. Please install Eclipse on your machine prior the event. If you have any technical difficulties installing Eclipse, please let the instructor know. AWS has posted Java Environment setup info here at this link.

Student registration fees go to Nova Labs to support the space.

    Should we go ahead and sign up for an AWS account (http://aws.amazon.com/)?

      I'm just reading about the new prices for Amazon AWS and Google Compute... the prices are so low that I will probably not buying servers anymore:

      Prices are falling. I wonder when, if ever, computing will just be free to the user?

    I individually emailed user name information to each person who RSVPd. See you this evening!

    Anyone else failing on installing this? I get an error that it can't find aws sqltools.

      To get around the sqltools problem, you can install the Database Tools features from the update site of whichever Eclipse release you have. After that the AWS features will install. I got everything except the AWS Android SDK in. If nothing else I'm learning a lot about Eclipse plugins...

      Nice work around. Having the full suite will be convenient for any future tinkering you want to conduct after class.

    The installs take quite a bit of time...please do them before the class, otherwise everyone else will have to wait quite a while.

    Addendum: Once Eclipse is installed, please also install within AWS ToolKit for Eclipse prior to class. The toolkit contains the prerequisite java libraries and is easier to install than the AWS Java SDK from GitHub. Link: http://aws.amazon.com/eclipse/

    I would understand if you don't have time to do so prior, though it will save class time if setup is done earlier.
