The cloud reinforces some old concepts of building highly scalable architectures and introduces some new concepts that entirely change the way applications are built, developed and deployed. In order to leverage the full potential of the cloud and enjoy all the benefits it has to offer, it is important to understand these concepts and make them intrinsic part of your cloud-based application architecture.

This session will discuss these concepts and benefits of automating your cloud-powered software development lifecycle with examples and highlight some basic patterns, tactics and practices that you as developer and architect can easily incorporate and implement in your cloud-based software development lifecycle. These concepts are also described in the whitepaper Architecting for the Cloud: Best Practices. More specifically, it will focus on how you can leverage the AWS CloudFormation that gives the ability to automate the deployment of complex environments using only a simple JSON configuration file - and the powerful Puppet Framework together.
