Everything you need to get running with IaaS for Amazon Web Services
Modern businesses rely on Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)--a setup in which someone else foots the bill to create application environments--and developers are expected to know how to write both platform-specific and IaaS-supported applications. If you're a developer who writes desktop and web applications but have little-to-no experience with cloud development, this book is an essential tool in getting started in the IaaS environment with Amazon Web Services.
In Amazon Web Services For Developers For Dummies, you'll quickly and easily get up to speed on which language or platform will work best to meet a specific need, how to work with management consoles, ways you'll interact with services at the command line, how to create applications with the AWS API, and so much more.
* Assess development options to produce the kind of result that's actually needed
* Use the simplest approach to accomplish any given task
* Automate tasks using something as simple as the batch processing features offered by most platforms
* Create example applications using JavaScript, Python, and R
* Discover how to use the XML files that appear in the management console to fine tune your configuration
Making sense of Amazon Web Services doesn't have to be as difficult as it seems--and this book shows you how.

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
