January 12 / Adron Hall Visual Studio AWS Toolkit & SDK, Building For the Cloud

The South Sound .NET Users Group is proud to present Adron Hall on Visual Studio AWS Toolkit & SDK, Building for the Cloud this coming January 12th at 7:00PM at the Olympia Center, 222 Columbia NW in downtown Olympia. Adron is a personal friend and brilliant developer who I have had the personal pleasure of working with. This presentation is one you will not want to miss.

Overview: During this presentation I will provide an overview of what is needed to get started using Visual Studio 2010 with the AWS Toolkit & SDK. We’ll also cover the basic design ideas behind the do’s and don’ts of cloud architecture and development. There will be some hands on coding (if you’d like to bring a laptop to follow along) and we will deploy code (wireless/cat5 connection pending) into AWS Cloud Services & get EC2 instances up and running live!

Bio: I’m a jovial, sometimes TDD (Test Driven Development), sometimes BDD (Behavior Driven Development), get things done well, software architect, engineer, code monkey, coder, or what have you. I run the gammut of development stacks between the .NET Framework & Microsoft Technologies but will admit my latest favorite is Ruby on Rails and .NET MVC work with a touch of Sinatra’s clean architecture covered with an awesome layer of Javascript for tasty perfection. I love what I do and commonly add a very business oriented, get the job done, agile (sometimes eXtreme Agile, sometimes whatever it takes), and entrepreneurial effort to my work. I also like to mentor (teach), write (re: blog, etc), and even work on projects in addition to work related things.
