Cloud development is inherently different than data center development. Understanding those differences, and architecting for them is critical to successful cloud solutions. In this workshop, we will both describe Netflix OSS platform components and show you how you can piece them together to build your own fault-tolerant REST services. These include: Hystrix, Ribbon, Eureka, and Archaius. In this hands-on lab, you will both learn the benefits of each of these services and use them in a sample application (in a test account). If you want to get things running in your own account, you may want to attend the afternoon session (Setting up your environment for the AWS cloud).
