I thought this book was well written. It is organized in a logical fashion, and it's obvious the author loves his work. Sometimes that's not apparent in more technical tomes. Mr. Barr does a great job balancing the time spent explaining and the time walking through examples so I think both top-down and bottom-up learners will get a lot of use out of this book. I'm not a programmer by trade, just someone that likes to tinker and knows enough about programming and web services to be dangerous. After reading the book and going through the example code projects, I now feel comfortable in my ability to analyze when a particular AWS is a good fit for a problem, and how to best utilize it's strengths. There's not much more you can ask for from a book on this topic.

Since this book is written for newcomers to AWS (like myself), I'm hoping/pleading Amazon will push some basic updates to those of us with Kindle versions. I'm not asking for anything big, but as an example the often-included 'cloudfusion.class.php' is now 'sdk.class.php'. Can people find it on their own? Sure - if I did, anyone can :) But now that cloudfusion has been rolled into the official SDK, it'd be an easy fix for the author/publisher/Amazon to push that change to the Kindle version. I don't expect weekly updates - I get that the book will be outdated relatively quickly, and another edition will likely roll out - but since this book is aimed at relative newcomers and the fix is pretty painless to extend it's useful life, I'd just offer it up as a suggestion.

This doesn't distract from how good the book is - if you follow the examples you'll have a great understanding of how AWS works and how to utilize it by the time you are through.

I found this book to be a very good introduction into the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud Computing platform. I'll admit to be being a little bit overwhelmed by AWS' offerings; i.e., Cloudfront, S3, EC2, SimpleDB, SNS, SQS, etc. This book pretty much clears everything up about AWS in understandable and clear language. It gave me plenty of ideas of how and what I could accomplish in using AWS; i.e., a website, an application platform, private computing resources, and more...

And thanks to Amazon's (recently added) generous 'free tier', my EC2 micro instance is now up and running on AWS! So far, I have not encountered any charges, although this is with light usage on my part. With free utility computing resources at the AWS' free tier, you can actually try out most of the exercises in the book with no (or little) charge.

The CloudFusion exercises as used in the book are slightly 'outdated'; it is now the 'official' AWS SDK and is renamed as such. So, some slight changes may be needed in the code. (Is there an errata online for this book?) This book does assume some intermediate PHP knowledge. There is an overview on cloud computing itself and an overview on Amazon's array of cloud computing services, which I found it to be very useful.

Overall, a 5-star book.

I bought this book to help me move my website into Amazon Web Services. For starting fresh with the service it did help me find my way around and learn the jargon, but that was about it. It is definitely geared more to folks who are looking for solutions other than a web host with AWS (not that it's their fault it just isn't something that is going to be much help to someone who isn't interested in everything else AWS can do).

I bought this book expecting to learn how to move my website into the cloud. I already had a vague understanding of Amazon's AWS, and was looking for a straightforward explanation of the best practices and methods for moving away from a standard hosting setup. However, this book provided NONE of that.

Get this book if you want to learn more about each of the major components of AWS, and write PHP scripts to do simple operations. But do NOT get this book if you're looking for practical advice on how to host a web site on AWS. For example, there's no discussion about using SSL certificates within AWS, only a couple of paragraph about public IP's and directing your DNS entries to it, nothing about any considerations for Apache, Tomcat, Jetty, or other servers. The coverage is pretty much 98% all about how to do the very basic operations with AWS.

Summary: You can learn everything this book presents for free on the Amazon's AWS website. If you're looking to move an existing website to AWS, this book won't really give you any help unless you don't even know what AWS is.

Very good book. I was wondering about this book for a long time. I noticed the last post mentioned the new free tier for AWS and was assured people like the read. Currently I'm using this book and AWS to get up to speed on the Cloud and how CMS systems (Django). If you need hand holding in book form ( I need this all the time ) I suggest buying this book.

He's from Amazon so he should know what he's doing :).
