Summary
This session will introduce Amazon Web Services (AWS) for Linux engineers. During this one and half hour session, we will build a web scale application from the ground up on AWS. We will begin with an introduction to Amazon Linux. Then we will examine a few options to deploy and configure an application in the Cloud. Next we will add a load balancer and auto scaling to dynamically add and remove capacity in response to load. Finally, we will externalize static content and add a CDN to take load off our application.
