Ole – André Johansen - How to think cost when programming Cloud Computing apps?
Cloud Computing give users access to large pools of resources on demand with a utility price model and thereby introduce the ability for developers to affect operational cost of an application. However, this ability is yet to be fully understood. In my master thesis I investigated the price models of several Cloud Computing providers, and described several ways to think about scalability and cost efficiency when designing and programming Cloud Computing applications. The presentation will focus on how to turn the mindset of the programmer to encompass the new responsibility of operational cost efficiency.
