Engineering Software as a Service: An Agile Approach Using Cloud Computing + $10 AWS Credit
A one-semester college course in software engineering focusing on cloud computing, software as a service (SaaS), and Agile development using Extreme Programming (XP). This book is neither a step-by-step tutorial nor a reference book. Instead, our goal is to bring a diverse set of software engineering topics together into a single narrative, help readers understand the most important ideas through concrete examples and a learn-by-doing approach, and teach readers enough about each topic to get them started in the field. Courseware for doing the work in the book is available as a virtual machine image that can be downloaded or deployed in the cloud. A free MOOC (massively open online course) at follows the book's content and adds programming assignments and quizzes. See for details.

A Conceptual Data Model for Amazon EC2 (Visual Cloud Computing Book 1)
You, the intrepid reader, are an IT professional (perhaps a seasoned veteran IT pro) and you plan on continuing and hope someday to retire as an IT pro. You’ve heard about "The Cloud" but as yet have had little or no direct experience with it. You’ve heard much about Amazon Web Services (AWS) -- the Amazon Cloud -- that AWS is the commercial public cloud leader -- and a mind-boggling and colossal IT accomplishment -- perhaps among the seven wonders of our IT world. You know you can’t avoid it. You will need to understand it at some point. Perhaps there’s been a recent edict from your IT leadership (i.e., from your CIO, CTO or IT team leader). The edict? Migrate your existing internally hosted applications ASAP from your private data centers to the cloud. Or perhaps such a decree is imminent as you are well aware of other IT acquaintances, working for other enterprises, who have been similarly challenged. You know it will happen -- if not already. So … you, like many IT professionals world-wide, are currently confronted with the challenge of cramming and quickly absorbing cloud computing concepts in general and AWS in particular. You will undoubtedly be summoned to either provide a presentation, impart your impressions, showcase a demo, migrate a simple app, participate in a more complex proof-of-concept, etc.You google “AWS Documentation” -- and you are amazed by scores of AWS cloud services described by hundreds of documents. You begin to scrutinize AWS overview web pages, introductory videos, online tutorials, and then launch a deeper dive into the user guides. You are beleaguered by an abundance of three-letter acronyms, ostensibly the most prominent of which is “EC2.” You quickly learn that Amazon EC2 (Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud) is the AWS foundation, the core upon which many other AWS services are crafted -- the flagship of the AWS service armada. You continue the EC2 deep dive and rapidly conclude that EC2 focuses on enabling virtual machines in the cloud and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). EC2 readily enables an account to be established for a customer, who can then promptly, dynamically and self-servingly provision application infrastructure components (e.g., virtual servers, network devices, storage devices, etc.). You also astutely absorb from the user guides that the underlying AWS compute, network and storage infrastructure is described by a plush vocabulary of many fundamental concepts. Its terminology and concepts are described by thousands of pages of detailed technical prose supported by many intuitive diagrams. But no data model? Amazon EC2, by itself, is an astonishing accomplishment, with many complex concepts and entwined relationships beyond its basic concepts. Unmistakably, your IT instincts suggest to you that the cycle time for achieving a confident overall understanding of Amazon EC2 can be substantially compressed with the help of a “conceptual data model” summarizing its many concepts and their interrelationships -- because pictures indeed are worth thousands of words. This book provides a visual overview of Amazon EC2 with the help of a Conceptual Data Model -- an entity relationship diagram (created with the IDERA ER/Studio Data Architect tool), serving as a “mind map” of fundamental EC2 concepts. This is likely the first attempt at publishing a conceptual data model for Amazon EC2. Improvement suggestions are welcomed. Let this be evidence that data modeling can serve as a fresh approach for unravelling the knots of any nebulous and highly technical subject area. The quest to quickly comprehend Amazon EC2 is indeed one such thorny challenge. Herein you will enjoy numerous intuitive entity-relationship diagrams -- a visual model of cloud computing -- the result of an earnest, dogged effort to demystify Amazon EC2 complexities -- inspiration that the world will be a much better place when all AWS services are graced with their accompanying conceptual data models.

Cloud Native Python: Build and deploy resilent applications on the cloud using microservices, AWS, Azure and more
Key Features
  • This is the only reliable resource that showcases the tools and techniques you need build robust and resilient cloud native applications in Python
  • Learn how to architect your application on both, the AWS and Azure clouds for high availability
  • Assess, monitor, and troubleshoot your applications in the cloud
Book DescriptionBusinesses today are evolving so rapidly that having their own infrastructure to support their expansion is not feasible. As a result, they have been resorting to the elasticity of the cloud to provide a platform to build and deploy their highly scalable applications.This book will be the one stop for you to learn all about building cloud-native architectures in Python. It will begin by introducing you to cloud-native architecture and will help break it down for you. Then you'll learn how to build microservices in Python using REST APIs in an event driven approach and you will build the web layer. Next, you'll learn about Interacting data services and building Web views with React, after which we will take a detailed look at application security and performance. Then, you'll also learn how to Dockerize your services. And finally, you'll learn how to deploy the application on the AWS and Azure platforms. We will end the book by discussing some concepts and techniques around troubleshooting problems that might occur with your applications after you've deployed them.This book will teach you how to craft applications that are built as small standard units, using all the proven best practices and avoiding the usual traps. It's a practical book: we're going to build everything using Python 3 and its amazing tooling ecosystem. The book will take you on a journey, the destination of which, is the creation of a complete Python application based on microservices over the cloud platformWhat you will learn

    Massive, disruptive change is coming to IT as software as a service (SaaS), SOA, mashups, Web 2.0, and cloud computing truly come of age. Now, one of the world’s leading IT innovators explains what it  all means—coherently, thoroughly, and authoritatively.   Writing for IT executives, architects, and developers alike, world-renowned expert David S. Linthicum explains why the days of managing IT organizations as private fortresses will rapidly disappear as IT inevitably becomes a global community. He demonstrates how to run IT when critical elements of customer, product, and business data and processes extend far beyond the firewall—and how to use all that information to deliver real-time answers about everything from an individual customer’s credit to the location of a specific cargo container.   Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise offers a clear-eyed assessment of the challenges associated with this new world—and offers a step-by-step program for getting there with maximum return on investment and minimum risk. Using multiple examples, Linthicum
    • Reviews the powerful cost, value, and risk-related drivers behind the move to cloud computing—and explains why the shift will accelerate
    • Explains the technical underpinnings, supporting technologies, and best-practice methods you’ll need  to make the transition
    • Helps you objectively assess the promise of cloud computing and SOA for your organization, quantify value, and make the business case
    • Walks you through evaluating your existing IT infrastructure and finding your most cost-effective, safest path to the “cloud”
    • Shows how to choose the right candidate data, services, and processes for your cloud computing initiatives
    • Guides you through building disruptive infrastructure and next-generation process platforms
    • Helps you bring effective, high-value governance to the clouds
