I received some great feedback on my survey of cloud computing platforms at the February Cloud Computing User Group in Downers Grove, so I’ve been asked to bring the show to the downtown Chicago meeting for the April meeting on Thursday, April 9 at 5:30 at Microsoft’s downtown location. If you saw the talk last month, I’ve been asked to beef it up with real world code running on all three major platforms: Google App Engine, Amazon Web Services, and Azure. It’s a simple photo sharing application based on the same code I showed in February for App Engine. Please sign up at https://www.clicktoattend.com/invitation.aspx?code=136727.
The full meeting description:
Join us for the fourth local meeting of the Cloud Computing User Group – this months being held at the Microsoft offices in Downtown Chicago. Note : this meeting will be a revisit and slight revamp of last month’s content. As before, we will be learning about how Live ID integration works in the Azure cloud computing platform. We’ll demo and dig into the code of an application built in the cloud that integrates directly with the Live ID service and stores information specific to the individual associated with that ID.
Also, as before, Scott Seely, Architect at MySpace, will kick off the meeting with a 1-hour overview of the top three cloud computing offerings available today: Google App Engine, Amazon EC3 and Azure Services. What Scott will also demo during this meeting is how to actually implement code one each of the three platforms, showcasing application hosting, storage and data retrieval.
