Those new to MIT App Inventor can have a simple first app up and running in less than 30 minutes. The MIT App Inventor project seeks to democratize software development by empowering all people, especially young people, to move from technology consumption to technology creation.
Jeffrey discusses the back end of MIT App Inventor, including how he migrated an instance with 200,000 users and 100 GB of storage from one cloud provider to another with only a few minutes of downtime.
Jeff works at MIT in the Information Services and Technology Department (IS&T). For more then 20 years he's managed MIT's Internet presence. He also built a significant portion of MIT's Security Infrastructure including its X.509 certificate deployment. MIT is probably has one of the largest deployments (and certainly the oldest, dating back to 1996) of X.509 client Certificates.
