Slack Video
14:56

Learn how Slack improved their API security and realized an approximately 300ms faster response time with Amazon CloudFront. In the video, Alex Graham, Sr. Operations Engineer from Slack, talks about how his team uses Amazon CloudFront to accelerate their API globally, and how it gives them flexibility to apply various security measures at the edge.

Amazon CloudFront and Lambda@Edge
53:24

End users expect to be able to view static, dynamic, and streaming content anytime, anywhere, and on any device. Amazon CloudFront is a web service that accelerates delivery of your websites, APIs, video content, or other web assets to end users around the globe with low latency, high data transfer speeds, and no commitments. In this session, learn what a content delivery network (CDN) such as Amazon CloudFront is and how it works, the benefits it provides, common challenges and needs, performance, recently released features and examples of how customers are using CloudFront. You will also learn about recustomizing content delivery through Lambda@Edge - a serverless compute service that lets you execute functions to customize the content delivered through CloudFront.

Speakers:

Tom Witman, AWS Business Development.

Nishit Sawhney, AWS Product Management.

Amazon CloudFront and Lambda@Edge Tech Talk
24:27

This session walks through multiple examples of web applications that use the serverless programming model for authentication, customization, and security to address the question of how to design and deploy intelligent web applications with Lambda@Edge and Amazon CloudFront. Also, David Von Lehman from Aerobatic joins us for a discussion around how they used Lambda@Edge to reduce latency and cloud costs for their customer’s websites.

Speakers:

David Von Lehman, Founder, Aerobatic.

Will St.Clair, AWS Sr Solutions Architect.

Raphael Hitzke, AWS Sr Product Marketing Manager

Lambda@Edge
55:48

AWS Lambda enables you to run code without provisioning or managing servers in one AWS Region. Today, Lambda@Edge provides the same benefits closer to your end users, enabling you to assemble and deliver content on-demand to create low-latency web experiences. Come and join us for examples of how customers can move significant workloads they previously managed server fleets into Lambda for truly serverless website backends.

Speakers:
George John, AWS Product Manager.

Manigandan Radhakrishnan, AWS Sr Software Development Engineer.

Lambda@Edge
56:53

Since last year’s ‘Taking DevOps to the Edge’, and with the introduction of AWS Lambda@Edge, the tools available to apply DevOps practices to your application edge have broadened. In this updated session, we dive deep into how you can integrate Amazon CloudFront and related services into your application, be agile in developing and adapting the application, and follow best practices when configuring the services to improve security and performance, all while reducing costs. You will learn how to determine the best location (origin, edge, or client) to execute your code, avoid needless forwarding of headers and cookies, test your application when making changes, version your configuration changes, monitor usage and automate security, create templates for new distributions, configure SSL/TLS certificates, and more.

Speaker:
Lee Atkinson, AWS Principal Solutions Architect.

Lambda@Edge
49:19

AWS Lambda enables you to run code without provisioning or managing servers. Today, you can write your Lambda functions once and execute them everywhere your end viewers are present with Lambda@Edge. This session walks through multiple examples of web applications that use the serverless programming model for authentication, customization, and security to address the question of how to design and deploy intelligent web applications with Lambda@Edge and Amazon CloudFront. The startup DataDome will also share its experience with Lambda@Edge and CloudFront, and how it simplified the onboarding process for its customers. Deployed globally on CloudFront PoP locations, their bot protection service can now be activated in one-click through the AWS console.


Speakers:
Benjamin Fabre, Datadome co-founder and CTO.

George John, AWS Product Management.

Will St. Clair, AWS Senior Solutions Architect.

Security
57:01

Your application is exposed to a variety of threats from common distributed attacks to sophisticated zero-day vectors. Learn how to architect beyond the region and take advantage of the AWS Edge Network and upgrade your security posture with easy to deploy solutions that scale. At this session you will learn how to I ensure your application will withstand malicious threats and DDoS attacks, what role does architecture play in your security posture, and how professional services and partners like Flux7 can help.

Speakers:
Shawn Marck, AWS Shield.

Tom Witman, AWS Business Development.

Flash Talks
43:46

In this series of technical flash talks, learn directly from Amazon CloudFront engineers about best practices on security, caching, measuring performance using Real User Monitoring (RUM), and customizing content delivery with Lambda@Edge.

Speakers:
Komei Nakamoto, Software Development Engineer, Amazon CloudFront.

Alexander Korobeynikov, Software Development Engineer, Amazon CloudFront.

Chaitanya Solapurkar, Software Development Engineer, Amazon CloudFront.

Webinar Recording
27:37

Today, developers have to forward requests from distributed CDN endpoints back to compute resources at their centralized servers in order to do any customized processing, slowing down the end user experience. The Lambda-based processing model allows you to write JavaScript code that runs within the growing network of AWS edge locations. In this tech talk, we will provide a deep dive on the capabilities of Lambda@Edge and its use cases.

Speaker:
George John, Product Management, Amazon Web Services.

 

Webinar Recording
52:41

In this tech talk, you will learn how you can better defend your websites and cloud infrastructure from cyberattacks using edge services from AWS, such as Amazon CloudFront, AWS Shield and AWS WAF. You will go behind the scenes to see how edge services help mitigate common DDoS attacks, how to use advanced protocols and ciphers, and how to enforce end-to-end HTTPS connections. You will also learn how to use additional features like AWS WAF's IP and bot blocking to implement tailored and advanced protection.

Speakers:
Nihar Bihani, Sr. Manager, Product Management, Amazon Web Services.

Venkat Vijayaraghavan, Principal Product Manager, AWS Shield.

Traditionally, content delivery networks (CDNs) were designed to accelerate static content. Amazon CloudFront supports delivery of an entire website, including dynamic, static, streaming and interactive content using a global network of edge locations. CloudFront integrates with other AWS services that are built to scale massively. Together, the solution can automatically scale to millions of users by leveraging the global reach of CloudFront and the auto scaling capability of AWS cloud. In this talk, we introduce you to various design patterns and best practices to build a massively scalable solution using CloudFront. We discuss how this scale can be achieved without compromising on availability, security or cost.

Learning Objectives:
• Learn how to use CloudFront dynamic delivery features

• See a live demo and learn how to take advantage of Cloud Front newest features
