Cloud Computing in PHP with the Amazon Web Services

You will learn how to use the
Amazon Web Services (AWS) including the
Elastic Compute Cloud, the
Simple Storage Service, and the
Simple Database Service to create a scalable application in PHP using the new
AWS SDK for PHP. You will see how easy and fun it is to build and run an application in the cloud.

    Suggest more hard code meetups like this...more code, more demos, less catering to the newbies (they'll follow along and learn more by being introduced to tougher concepts).

    Like the demo as well.

    Excellent. New Relic provided Pizza before the meeting. Two informative presenters at the meeting: (1)Brian Doll from New Relic and (2)Jeff Barr from Amazon Web Services. New Relic provides application performance management for Rails, PHP, Java and .Net. Jeff Barr's presentation provided a lot of code. New Relic paid for the book about Amazon Web services distributed after the meeting. The PHP Meetup home page hosts a video of the meeting. Another video of Brian Doll about New Relic's RPM is here:

    @Jesse: Please don't make generic statements bashing on AWS without data/reasoning behind it. Jeff has been very helpful to me in the past and AWS is a recognized leader in cloud related technologies.

    That's a bit of an over-statement, it really depends on what kind of application you are thinking of.

    Usually even if they are full, if you get there, you have to wait 5 to 10 mins and they will let you in. So its better to get there. It happened to me. I didnt even registered online and just showed up and they let me in :), so chill

    I really want to make this meetup. In general, how many people reserve, but don't end up showing up? Would it be worth it to go on the day of if I'm 23 on the WL or would it not be worth my time?
