The next ALE-NW@SPSU meeting is being held
Thursday, November 8th, 2012 at 7:30pm in room J-266
of the Atrium (J) building on the SPSU campus.
The feature presentation will be:
Getting Started with Linux
On the Amazon Cloud
with Orlando Karam
– Amazon Web Services are among the most popular
“infrastructure-as-a-service” offerings on the internet;
they let you easily run Linux (and other OSs) as virtual
machines on Amazon’s infrastructure. In this talk, we
will give a brief introduction to capability and pricing,
and talk about how to start VMs from the web or from
scripts with the boto python library.
– Orlando Karam was born in the US but grew up in
Mexico. He got hooked up with Unix while a grad student
at Tulane University, and has been running Linux on
servers and laptops for more than 15 years. He teaches
computer science at Southern Polytechnic State University,
and is starting to use AWS for research and development.
