Sessions, Workshops, and Chalk Talks

DAT326 – Amazon DocumentDB Deep Dive (Session)

Developers have adopted the flexible schema and expressive query language of the MongoDB API because it enables them to build and evolve applications faster. However, some developers find that managing databases can be time-consuming, complicated, and challenging to scale. Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) provides a fast, reliable, fully managed MongoDB-compatible database service that eliminates time-consuming setup and management tasks, allowing developers to focus on building high-performance, scalable applications. Join us to learn more about Amazon DocumentDB, how Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA) uses Amazon DocumentDB to more efficiently run their business, and how you can run MongoDB workloads at scale.

DAT338-R – Hands-on workshop: How to migrate to Amazon DocumentDB (Workshop)

Amazon DocumentDB is a fast, reliable, fully managed MongoDB-compatible database service. If you’re using MongoDB today, how can you move your workloads to Amazon DocumentDB? What do you need to think about before, during, and after migration? Which tools and approaches should you use to ensure a successful migration? Join us to learn how to migrate MongoDB workloads to Amazon DocumentDB, and also get a demo of using AWS Database Migration Service (DMS).

DAT357-R – Build Flexible Data Architectures with Amazon DocumentDB Change Streams (Chalk Talk)

Using the databases that are best-suited for your workload is a key tenet of the AWS purpose-built database approach. In this session, you learn how to use Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) change streams to stream data to Amazon S3 for analytics, to Amazon Elasticsearch Service for enhanced search capabilities, and to Amazon ElastiCache to pre-warm a Redis cache.

DAT370 – Best practices for Amazon DocumentDB (Chalk Talk)

Taking the lessons we’ve learned from working with customers over the past year, we’re excited to share some best practices for working with Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility). Join this chalk talk to learn about migration strategies, how to properly size your clusters, scaling in production, how to benchmark your application with Amazon DocumentDB, driver configurations and connection pooling, tips and tricks for cost optimization, and more.

DAT372 – Migrating your databases to Amazon DocumentDB (Session)

Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) is a fast, reliable, fully managed MongoDB-compatible database service. What are the best practices to move your workloads to Amazon DocumentDB? What do you need to think about before, during, and after migration? Which tools and approaches should you use to ensure a successful migration? Join us to learn how to migrate database workloads to Amazon DocumentDB, hear first-hand from FINRA on their experience migrating to Amazon DocumentDB, and also get a demo of AWS Database Migration Service (AWS DMS).

Startup Talks

STP05 – Building the factory of the future today with robotics & ML

Bright Machines is revolutionizing manufacturing by using adaptive robotics, computer vision, machine learning, and sensor technology to automate final product assembly. The company has deployed 30+ software-defined microfactories to customer manufacturing sites across Asia, Europe, and North America. It has leveraged AWS since its founding, using Amazon SageMaker, AWS Lambda, and Amazon EKS for deep learning; Amazon EMR, Amazon Neptune, and Amazon DocumentDB for analytics; and more. In this session, Nick Ciubotariu, SVP of Engineering at Bright Machines, and Jim Puzar, Flex’s VP & liaison to Bright Machines, talks about the company’s journey, customer case studies, and how it uses AWS to scale.

STP14 – Cloud, blockchain, and the resource-optimized future

Blockchain technology is generating a great amount of excitement among businesses, governments, and developer communities alike. So as digital resources increasingly become tokenized and tradeable on tomorrow’s blockchain networks, managing these tokenized resources will become vitally important. Blockchain networks and tokenized assets will need to be utilized in concert with cloud computing, autonomous systems, and AI for this to materialize. In this session, Jeff Garzik, co-founder and CEO of Bloq, covers how these components fit together with the help of AWS and products such as Amazon Elastic Block Store, Amazon DocumentDB, and Amazon CloudWatch, to build the tokenized future.
