Amazon Web Services and Node

05 Jul 2013

Last week was Amazon’s first summit in Auckland, PaperKite decided to take the team up to Auckland for the day to see what it was all about. We had a great time and was provided with a great insight about all the services that AWS provides.

Once we got back, over the long weekend due to the Queen’s Birthday I had a play with a few node.js app’s and hosting it on EC2.

This is more for me that a tutorial on how to do so, but it’s here anyway. I’m assuming you have a brand new instance of Amazon Linux running and have logged in for the first time.

I may post about how to set up nginx nodejs proxy-ing in the future!
