Since 2006, Amazon Web Services have been providing on demand, pay-as-you-go infrastructure to teams of all sizes. This talk will introduce AWS Elastic Beanstalk, a new service for deploying Java code to the Amazon cloud platform. Elastic Beanstalk takes a packaged WAR file and automatically provisions load balanced, fault tolerant, auto-scaling elastic servers running a familiar Tomcat and Apache stack.

We’ll discuss how to work with Elastic Beanstalk, the underlying architectural patterns for getting the most from it, and integrating it into your development and test workflow from Eclipse. The presentation will include a live demo.

Who should attend:
All are welcome, from those new to Java to experienced enterprise architects, and no previous experience of cloud computing or the Amazon platform is required.

Agenda:
18:00: Doors Open
18:30: A series of lightning talks from members of the London Java Community.
19:00: Matt Wood – Amazon Evangelist will present Amazon Beanstalk.
