Having built two different products on cloud-based platforms, Will Stevens would like to share his experiences and help you understand the differences between IAAS and PAAS. 

Agenda includes:

1. Clarify what PAAS and IAAS are in cloud computing

2. Articulate the differences and when to use either

3. Walkthrough case studies of Heroku and AWS

4. Demo two apps and compare the cloud experiences

5. Ensure you leave with knowledge of when to use either

Driving Directions
From Henderson Road turn onto Arlington Centre Blvd. Then turn left at the second opportunity (second opening in the median). You should see two signs for CompuSuites and Tree of Life. Once through the gate (don’t worry parking is free) turn left, then park in that parking lot. We are in Building 2 labeled CompuSuites.


Google maps locates the CompuSuites building on the wrong side of Arlington Centre Blvd. Bing Maps is correct.
