Topic: PaaS: Hassle-free Camping in the Cloud
Info: Mon, Aug 12th Time: 2:30 PM
Let’s face it, sometimes we just don’t want to go through the effort of setting up the tent, fire pit, and other outdoor essentials in order to have a nice camping experience. The RV or cabin seem much more appealing on occasion. Similarly, Platform as a Service (PaaS) offers an attractive alternative to the more rugged, traditional infrastructure-based approach to application deployment but without the hassle and tedium of setting up and managing your own servers.
Platform as a Service isn’t new, but the number of options is increasing and modern tooling makes it easier than ever to use. This session will focus on how .NET web development fits into the PaaS world by examining the details of services such as AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Azure Web Sites, and AppHarbor. We’ll take a look at why using PaaS presents advantages over traditional infrastructure and how some of these platforms integrate into the development environment. We will also take a look at some demos of the efficiency gains and other cool things that PaaS gives us to make our lives easier (like ridiculously easy continuous deployment!). By the time we’re done, you should have the information needed to make the decision on when to use PaaS and how to start working with it right away.
