Cost: $125 members and $145 non-members to be paid at

Do you have a technical background in other areas and you want to get started in Cloud Computing? Do you want to find out more about Map-Reduce and scaling up flexibly on a larger number of CPUs? What tools should be used by a new person to get started quickly or for an experienced development group to develop large scale enterprise system? Do you want to better understand how how one architects systems in the Cloud?

This training session goes over basic cloud concepts in general along with the advantages of Cloud vs. traditional computing. To make things tangible, there is a walk through of the mechanics needed to get an existing, small sample application up an running on a cloud provider. Then the session will cover how such a system could incrementally scale up to dozens or hundreds of CPUs. Architecture principles and decisions will cover how to design and scale systems from small to a huge scale.

The end of the training seminar will allow for questions and an open discussion. Bring your questions and challenges.
