Setting up MySQL on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Presentation

On Tuesday at the MySQL Camp 2009 in Santa Clara I presented Setting up MySQL on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

This presentation assumed you know nothing about AWS, and have no account. With Internet access via a Browser and a valid Credit Card, you can have your own running Web Server on the Internet in under 10 minutes, just point and click.

We also step into some more detail online click and point and supplied command line tools to demonstrate some more advanced usage.

    This was an extremely helpful presentation as it helped set expectations for getting started on AWS.
    I’d suggest just a few more slides showing some basic MySQL usage.
    i.e. something that confirms that MySQL is, in fact, installed and works as usual…like you did for the index.html page
