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.
