Shopping For Real: Amazon Web Services in Second Life

Shopping_for_real A few weeks ago, as reported on my personal blog, I was interviewed within and about Second Life by a pair of reporters for the Second Life Business Magazine. The new issue was released late last night and I wasted no time downloading it and looking for the resulting article!

If you would like to read it, simply download the PDF and then skip forward to page 71.

Needless to say, I think that there are many ways for  AWS developers to bring their existing skills to this new world and I look forward to seeing even more cool examples of what can be built within Second Life.

What most developers don’t know is that there’s a very powerful event-driving scripting language inside of Second Life. Any object can respond to clicks and other events with just a few lines of LSL — the Linden Scripgt Langguage. As a starting point, you may want to look at the LSL tutorial or the LSL Wiki. I’ve written some scripts of my own, including the Elevator Script.

Need I even remind you that you should email me if you build something cool in Second Life using AWS?
