Learn How to Modernize Your Applications at AWS Serverless Innovation Day
Join us on Wednesday, May 17, for AWS Serverless Innovation Day, a free full-day virtual event. You will learn about AWS Serverless technologies and event-driven architectures from customers, experts, and leaders.
AWS Serverless Innovation Day is an event to empower builders and technical decision-makers with different AWS Serverless technologies, including AWS Lambda, Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) with AWS Fargate, Amazon EventBridge, and AWS Step Functions. The talks of the day will cover three key topics: event-driven architectures, serverless containers, and serverless functions, and how they can be utilized to build and modernize applications. Application modernization is a priority for organizations this year, and serverless helps to increase the software delivery speed and reduce the total cost of ownership.
Eric Johnson and Jessica Deen will be the hosts for the event. Holly Mesrobian, VP of Serverless Compute at AWS, will deliver the welcome keynote and share AWS’s vision for Serverless. The day ends with closing remarks from James Beswick and Usman Khalid, Events and Workflows Director at AWS.
The event is split into three groups of talks: event-driven architecture, serverless containers, and Lambda-based applications. Each group kicks off with a fireside chat between AWS customers and an AWS leader. You can learn how organizations, such as Capital One, PostNL, Pentasoft, Delta Air Lines, and Smartsheets, are using AWS Serverless technologies to solve their most challenging problems and continue to innovate.
During the day, all the sessions include demos and use cases, where you can learn the best practices and how to build applications. If you cannot attend all day, here are some of my favorite sessions to watch:
- Building with serverless workflows at scale – Ben Smith will show you how to unleash the power of AWS Step Functions.
- Event design and event-first development – In this session, David Boyne will show you a robust approach to event design with Amazon EventBridge.
- Best practices for AWS Lambda – You will learn from Julian Wood how to get the most out of your functions.
- Optimizing for cost using Amazon ECS – Scott Coulton will show you how to reduce operational overhead from the control plane with Amazon ECS.
