2012 May Project

Continuing on my project/month theme.. here is what I want to accomplish in May 2012

  • Understand Google App Engine and Windows Azure Platforms
  • Write a simple application and deploy it both the platforms
  • The application that I am envisioning will display the “user agent” string of the client trying to access the application. I know there are tons of sites that already do this.. but I think this is an useful tool to have in your bag of tricks :). It is simple enough that I think I can program it in a month.

Why am I doing this? I understand the IaaS area pretty well, but am not well versed in the PaaS arena. Hoping this adventure will teach me some new things. And yes, I do plan on documenting my journey :).

Wish me luck 🙂
