Amazon Web Services (AWS) is well known to developers for providing a vast army of on-demand servers on which you can run anything, including CFML or Node.js. AWS offers a whole lot more than servers in the cloud, though. AWS is comprised of over 40 services which enable powerful Web/mobile application functionality, and you can tap into nearly all of them using your favorite programming language. With only a few lines of code, you get powerful, hugely scalable functionality that would otherwise be near-impossible to build yourself. This talk will show you how to tap in to the power of multiple AWS services from your CFML code, and mix in some Node.js goodness along the way.

In this session, you'll learn to:

  • Get super fast, infinitely scalable file storage with Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3)
  • Invoke on-demand Node.js microservices through AWS Lambda
  • Tap into AI to manage and search images with Reflektor
  • Utilize a high-throughput NoSQL datastore with DynamoDB
  • Plan for common problems when dealing with cloud service providers
