Andy Duncan, ITV - The Cloud is Other People's Computers
A frequent criticism of The Cloud is that is only other people's computers. However that could be the most exciting thing about the move to cloud computing. If "other people" are looking after the computers, we can focus on the more important business solving our real problems.
In this session we will implement a highly available URL shortening service, at minimal cost and management overhead. By using native features of cloud computing we can quickly build complex applications and concentrate our efforts on solving business problems, not managing infrastructure.
