Overview

Cloud-based applications provide unprecedented scalability, flexibility, and room for growth. But getting your application into the cloud isn't trivial. In this O'Reilly Breakdown, cloud programmer Dan Pilone walks you through the basics of getting an application into Google's App Engine. You'll get your development environment set up, move a working Java application into the cloud, and get your head around all the concepts involved in cloud-based computing.

The experts in the O'Reilly Breakdown live video series not only break down the concepts of difficult and complex subjects, they also demonstrate practical implementation and use. Each episode features an experienced programmer, developer, or software designer working on real-world challenges, ranging from iPad user interface design and multi-tasking on Android phones to caching in cloud-based applications.

"Why the annoying 'OK' 'Ummhmm' guy?" - by dingus on 15-JUL-2011

If it were just the cloud programmer, Dan Pilone, providing a solid overview of the technology, this would be great. However, there is this annoying, disruptive, over-talkative 'everyman' in the video with him reasking useless questions, and echoing an 'okay' to everything Pilone says.

Please, I don't need an 'everyman' sitting there being stupid at the camera. Give me the expert and tell everyone else to shut up.
