Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday June 8 will be "CF in the AWS Cloud: a zero-to-60 live demo", with Akiva (Pete) Lombardo. (Topic description and speaker bio below.)



TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

This discussion will serve as a walkthrough of getting from nothing to a working CF Application in the AWS Cloud. It is designed for beginners and intermediate AWS skill levels. Beginners will get a soup-to-nuts walk-through and intermediate users might find it a good review and unearth some possible stumbling blocks.

The steps will include the creating of: AWS accounts; an internal network; a ColdFusion AMI instance, a database and related steps along the way. We will also touch on a few variations such as LightSail and a Linux implementation.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: (provided by the speaker)

Pete has worked 20 years as CF Developer and has spoken on a variety of related subjects during that time.

He currently works as a web developer at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health on its flagship distance education platform, CoursePlus. His most common jargon include t-sql, DDL, ColdFusion, Mach-II, TestBox, AJ AX, Bootstrap, jQuery and JSON.
