This Meetup is past

20 people went


So your company is adopting a "Cloud First" strategy.
What do you need to do to get your applications from on-premises to the Cloud?

During this session we will explore some of the core concepts of cloud development from Infrastructure as a Service and Platform as a Service.

We will look at the differences between on-premises and cloud architectures and considerations to take into account when planning in how to migrate applications or rebuild them in the cloud.

We will also cover security, high availability and deployment scenarios.
