Building a Multi-Region Solution for Auto Recovery of Amazon EC2 Instances Using AWS CDK and AWS Step Functions
Learn about a multi-regional first-line of support solution Chaos Gears put together using a serverless application running AWS Lambda under the baton of AWS Step Functions to relieve a customer’s engineers from some of their operational burdens.

APN Ambassador Francois Rouxel from Slalom will show you how to create a hundred VPCs in one AWS region without providing any parameters, and how to easily establish a peering connection between two of them within a single line of code.
