Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday May 11 will be "AWS for CF Developers: The low-hanging fruit", with Akiva (Pete) Lombardo. (Topic description and speaker bio below.)


TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

There are hundreds of ways to use the many AWS components to serve up a CF application. And, of course, some of these components have recently changed and some are just plain new. Aimed at beginner-to-intermediate audiences, this talk will step through the key concepts, implementation steps, and gotchas that CF developers will face. Areas to be covered include, ec2, RDS, s3, the ColdFusion AMI, VPC's and a few other odds and ends.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER: (provided by the speaker)

Pete has worked 20 years as Web Application Developer and Database Administrator. And, a while back, he spent 6 years teaching college evening classes on a variety of Windows server stuff.

He currently specializes in full-featured CMS and distance education systems. His most common jargon include: t-sql, DDL, ColdFusion, Mach-II, TestBox, AJAX, Bootstrap, jQuery and JSON. Currently works as a web developer at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health on its flagship distance education platform, CoursePlus. I enjoy being Jewish, having a loving family and my Chromebook.

(Note that the calendar entry created will show the event taking 2 hours. That's a default that has chosen, which I can't change. The meetings are generally about an hour, though often go as much as 30-45 minutes longer with Q&A and chat.)
