HowTo write a website in the Cloud

Using Amazon and Google to serve your data

Cloud computing is getting more and more popular and has now become more than a hyped theory. Twitter and other big companies happily tap into this massive resource. But how can you write applications harnessing the power of all these machines? This is what this talk will try to explain by showing how to write a little application with Google App Engine and then with Amazon EC2 and S3.

This talk will explain how to write applications in the Cloud. By developing a little personal example web site with guest book and online editing functionality. This is then run in EC2 and App Engine. Through this some basic concepts are explained like scalable storage and CPU time. The aim is that everyone who has a little knowledge about programming beforehand can understand what is needed to write cloud applications in the PaaS and IaaS environment. It is not important which language you know as programming is just used to explain what happens in the back-end.
