Hey code monkeys! Marc Chung from OpenRain.com gave a funtabulous presentation at this week's AZ on Rails user group meeting on deploying rails applications on Amazon's EC2 (Elastic Computing Cloud) and also demonstrated chaining tasks together in the cloud to work on a common goal (like calculating pi) using MPI (Message Passing Interface Standard). This is a MUST hear discussion. Thanks to Derek Neighbors for putting together show notes and thanks to Marc for sharing his experience with all of us :) http://derekneighbors.com/2008/2/20/phoenix-rails-february
