I did a lightning talk at Code4Lib on Amazon Web Services. Eventually a video of my presentation will be posted online, but in the meantime, I’m uploading my screencast here.
Essentially I launch an AMI, associate it to an IP address and then connect to it using terminal. Pretty simple really but super powerful if you have no money and need a server quickly.
The screencast below is a bit small so here’s a link to it in case you need to see it bigger http://www.screencast.com/t/kIBVibIsL5T
