Format: Paperback
Amazon Web Services are a constantly expanding series of infrastructure services targeted to web developers who want to outsource parts of their application infrastructure. These services are meant to be reliable, scalable and cost-effective. Especially as far as reliability is concerned, however, Amazon Web Services - together with Google App Engine - have recently been regarded as a bit controversial, due to some downtime episodes. Nonetheless, services such as these provide a gate to the future of the Internet, where owners of small and medium web sites, who can't afford to build some high-quality services on their own, can easily outsource them.

Programming Amazon Web Services is the ideal primer to Amazon outsourcing services. It provides a general view of everything Amazon currently offers, including some services in the beta testing phase, as well as the necessary amount of in-depth coverage of each service.

A programmer who never outsourced any part of its infrastructure might not be much confident using APIs which abstract tasks such as database access and data storage (even though it would be a good practice to use some sort of API also for locally-provided services). To help in this situations, this book kicks off with an explanation on how to think an application, with an appreciated overview of REST-based APIs, remote requests and XML documents and their handling; at the same time, the author tells you how Amazon thinks you should build your application to effectively take advantage of what they provide.

After this introductory part, the whole book is dedicated to the exploration of each service: Simple Stoage Service (S3), Elastic Compute Cloud, Simple Queue Service, Flexible Payments Service and SimpleDB.

Despite being filed under Books > Computers & Internet > Computer Science > Programming > Languages > Java > Web Services and the author describing himself as '...a software developer with extensive experience creating web-based applications and architectures using Java...' much of this book is actually written in Ruby. The code examples are available for Python and Java as a download however.

This book is a good reference for AWS services, but it does suffer from the normal problem of a book covering a rapidly evolving technology in that it's already out of date.

It covers the basics of how to use most of the services, and is extremely good for getting an understanding of the various offerings Amazon have, but for the most up to date information you'll need to pay a visit to the AWS website.
