Let's be very honest, cloud computing cannot be learned in one day. There are several architectural challenges to deploying your application, such as which framework to choose, reflection or reflectionless, native or non-naive. We also have the operational challenges such as backups, CI/CD, and much more.

This presentation explains how to make some of these design choices and the tradeoffs to consider when building applications to run in a virtual cloud environment.
