Tim Bray and Friends | Live Stream Messaging Series

Join Tim Bray, AWS Senior Principal Engineer, and fellow industry experts in an interactive, multi-part live stream messaging series on twitch.tv/aws. Tim and his guests will discuss and demonstrate how developers are using messaging in modern application architecture. Learn how to use messaging to simplify and scale serverless apps and microservices, integrate on-prem and cloud resources, enable real-time analytics, and support millions of devices. Each episode will dive into how customers are using AWS messaging services to do some pretty cool stuff like:

  • build a massive microservices media pipeline
  • stream ad-impression data for analytics
  • accelerate migration and enable hybrid architecture
You drive the direction of each discussion with your questions and comments, so tweet @Timbray if you have a request for an upcoming episode, or share your questions and thoughts in Twitch chat.
