On August 14th, Javier Lozano (@jglozano) gave a demo and led a discussion on “Scaling an Application on the Cloud.” Cloud hosting is an important topic in the entrepreneurial community given the drive to be scalable quickly without the initial cost and maintenance of expensive infrastructure, just one of the many technology decisions that teams will make along the life-cycle of their product and company.
He discussed how a developer can use cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Windows Azure, DNS configuration, etc. to scale out applications at low cost and will share examples such as the infrastructure changes planned for Skype after it was acquired by Microsoft.
