Amazon S3 and Rails - Take the First Step into the Cloud
Learn how to make your apps faster, more scalable, bullet-proof and just plain cooler with Scott Patten, author of The S3 Cookbook.
Scott Patten will get you set up to use S3 and get you creating and downloading objects using s3sh, and give a whirlwind tour of its architecture and features.
We’ll then talk about S3 and its uses for web applications: serving user generated data and assets, backing up your app, authenticated downloads and whatever other crazy things you are using it for. Then we’ll open the floor to a discussion of S3 tips, tricks and pitfalls.
