Amazon Web Services and ColdFusion

We're trying a few new things to make your BACFUG experience more enjoyable.
So that means: New Time! Adjusted agenda! Free Food! (OK , that one is still the same)

We'll be kicking off this month's BACFUG meeting earlier - at 6:00 p.m. instead of gathering at 6:30 and kicking-off at 7:00.

The Agenda

6:00 Pizza and Networking
we know local folks will be getting off work -- and having to wait around for over an hour for the UG meeting to start makes for a loooong day, so we'll start the meeting at 6:00 with pizza and network with fellow ColdFusion'ers. If you're traveling to us from the South, North or East Bay, let us know and we'll save a slice or two for you.

6:30 Project Questions | Code Queries | UG Business
After P&N we'll cover any upcoming UG business, raffle when appropriate, field questions and give advice when requested. We are considering adding a 'lighting talk' for members to present current projects. We'd love to hear your feedback on that...

7:00 Presentation Mike Schierberl: Amazon Web Services and ColdFusion
Mike Schierberl will help us discover Amazon Web Services (AWS) and how you can use them in your ColdFusion Projects. I'll have MIke's final abstract added here by tomorrow. There will be time for for Q&A as well.

Summary: AWS and ColdFusion
Amazon has more products and acronyms for web services than you can shake a stick at. EC2, S3, RDS, VPC, SQS, SNS, SES, EBS, the list goes on and on. Find out what all these services can do and how you can take advantage of them when developing ColdFusion applications. We'll cover the basics of setting up your account and first cfml server, then provide tips for scaling applications and reducing costs.

About Mike:
Mike Schierberl has over 13 years of experience developing CFML applications. Previously director of engineering at Planitax and co-founder at orangepiel.com, he is currently developing next-generation web applications at Brit.co.

We look forward to seeing you this month!

    Mike did a great job covering the various offerings from Amazon and how they could be used in a ColdFusion site.

    Here's the link to my slides, Google docs mangled the format, email me if you'd like the originals.

    Additionally, here's a link to the CloudFormation template I demoed at the end of the presentation. The Ubuntu AMI's aren't quite up to date, so you might only be able to run this in US-West-2 (Oregon)
