Gluing the Web Together with AWS SQS & JavaScript/Node.js

Please note the address and time changes.


Many developers think that being in the cloud is just turning on some cloud servers and deploying their website. Utilizing cloud services is so much more! In this presentation, we're going to look at Amazon's SQS (Simple Queue Service) and how you can use it to glue the web together. SQS is a fast, reliable, scalable, fully managed message queuing service and we'll look at how to decouple your services, scale your applications and real code examples.
