Intended audience

This book is intended for people who need to know how to use the HS3 API to work with buckets and objects in HCP. The book addresses two audiences:


People who are writing applications against HCP. These people are assumed to have programming experience.


People who are accessing HCP though a third-party, S3-compatible tool (such as s3curl). These people are assumed to have experience using the applicable tool.


In either case, the book assumes you have a basic knowledge of HTTP, as specified by RFC 2616.


This book does not assume any prior knowledge of HCP concepts or functionality.
