    Keynote Address
    Dev in 2018: A World of Freedom, Openness and Data Centricity

    The way we develop software is changing rapidly and data is now key to a successful application. The code that powers your distributed applications needs to be portable and embrace open-source frameworks to fast-track your development effort and abstract away difficult concepts. The rapid expansion of ecosystems and cloud computing are driving the pace of innovation at an incredible speed, with rapid growth in cloud-connected systems, and edge devices. So, in this fast-paced, complex world, what are the strategies and techniques that developers can use to build the successful, data-driven platforms of the future? How can you embrace distributed computing models in a highly-available and scalable manner and derive business value through data-centric deployments? Through an examination of software development methodologies that allow for experimentation and fast delivery, we will discuss and demonstrate how open-source, in conjunction with AWS, is helping builders be free to move faster in a lean fashion.

    11:00 - 11:30

    Containers, Containers, Containers

    However you'd like to deploy, manage, and scale your containerised applications, AWS has you covered. In this session we will deep dive in to Amazon ECS and Amazon EKS, highlighting the differences in capabilities and the different trade-offs that you need to consider. The goal of this session is to arm you with all of the details you need to make an informed decision about which container orchestration tool is right for your use case.

    Services
    Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS)

    Building Multi-Tenant Apps for Millions of New Customers

    Securing your application and on-boarding new clients can be costly and complex. You need a detailed workflow to allow new clients to register, verify email or phone number, allow them to recover lost passwords, and provide social federation - all while keeping their private data safe and secure. In this session you will learn how you can leverage Amazon Cognito to make sign-up and sign-in simple, and how you can safely secure customer data with Amazon API Gateway, AWS Lambda, Amazon DynamoDB. We will also check out advanced security features that protect your users with adaptive authentication and the new ALB integration.

    Services
    Amazon Cognito, Application Load Balancer, AWS Lambda, and Amazon API Gateway

    11:40 - 12:10

    Cleaning Up the Mesh With a Service Mesh!

    Reliable service-to-service communication is the cornerstone of any distributed application. In this session we will explore what a service mesh is and how a service mesh can be deployed along-side your application to abstract away the complexity typically associated with managing request retries, dynamic routing, load balancing, encryption, authentication, and more. You will learn how to deploy a service mesh to Amazon ECS, Amazon EKS, and we will discuss how a service mesh can bridge the gap between containers and serverless.

    Services
    Amazon ECS and Amazon EKS

    Deliver Software Faster and Safely by Building Serverless Applications

    In this session you will learn how you can leverage serverless architectures to increase the speed at which you release products, services, and features to your users. You will learn how to define serverless applications with the AWS SAM, and how to use the AWS SAM CLI tool to author, test, and debug serverless applications locally, before deploying to AWS. We will also show you how you can safely deploy changes to your AWS Lambda functions and API Gateway APIs using automated canary deployments, and cover best practices for your deployment workflows specific to serverless applications.

    12:20 - 12:50

    Developing Smart Contracts with the Ethereum Blockchain on AWS

    Blockchain has many use-cases beyond cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, but how can you be sure that blockchain is the right technology for your project? In this session we will discuss what makes a good blockchain use case such as using smart contracts for traceability and accountability between untrusted parties. Then dive into how developers can design, build, test, deploy, and iterate smart contracts on a private Ethereum network hosted on AWS.

    Services
    Amazon EC2, Amazon CloudFormation

    Adding AWS Machine Learning Tools to Your Developer Toolkit

    Machine Learning is having a major impact in our society as we seek to turn data into intelligence. This session will empower you to make the AWS machine learning tools a key part of your developer toolkit. We will cover pre-trained AWS machine learning models such as Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Comprehend, and Amazon Transcribe with code demonstrations showing how you can easily start integrating them into your own applications. We will then discuss the new capabilities delivered by Amazon SageMaker along with a demonstration of transfer learning with the built-in image classification algorithm.

    Self-Defending Borders - A Developers Approach to Serverless Security

    It's 2018 and security can no longer be looked at in isolation. In this session we will look at how services, once the realm of architects and developers, can augment traditional security services to not only put the 'Dev' in DevSecOps, but to allow you to create a self-defending architecture that dynamically responds to the threats facing your online assets.

    Services
    AWS Lambda, AWS StepFunctions, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon API Gateway, Amazon SNS, AWS IoT, and Amazon GuardDuty

    Intelligence of things: IoT, AWS DeepLens and Amazon SageMaker

    With IoT, Machine Learning is going everywhere. Using Amazon SageMaker it's never been easier to build Intelligent Things. In this session we look at how we can push intelligence from cloud-trained models to the edge using AWS Greengrass and explore how devices such as AWS DeepLens make it easy to bring intelligence to your things.

    Services
    Amazon SageMaker, AWS IoT, AWS DeepLens, and AWS Greengrass

    14:30 - 15:00

    Building a Secure Cross-Account CI/CD Pipeline

    Large organisations use multiple AWS accounts which provides the highest level of resource and security isolation. Come and see how you can implement a secure Cross-Account access based on AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), AWS CodeCommit, and AWS CodePipeline.

    Services

    How to Containerise .NET Apps and Run Them on AWS

    Taking advantage of containers for your .Net applications is easy on AWS. In this session you will learn how easy it is to containerise your .NET apps using your favourite Microsoft tools like Visual Studio and how easy it is to run them on AWS ECS. We will show you how you can integrate your favourite Microsoft Build system like Microsoft Team Foundation Service (TFS) with AWS ECS to do a continuous delivery.

    Services

    Secrets Should Remain Secret

    Using AWS cloud-native services like AWS Secrets Manager and AWS Systems Manager Parameter Store, developers can easily align with best practices and eliminate top security concerns such as how to best handle and store credentials and other secrets in your applications. In this session we will discuss which tool is right for the various use-cases including complex scenarios like password rotation and auditing access to secrets. We will cover how developers can incorporate the AWS services into their applications, AWS CloudFormation templates, and deployment pipelines.

    Getting Started Building Serverless Data-Driven Web Apps using React, GraphQL, and AWS AppSync

    Since its release in 2015, GraphQL has risen in popularity as a compelling alternative to REST for developing APIs thanks to its network efficiency, client-driven design, and technical flexibility. But deploying a highly available and scaleable GraphQL server can be a challenge. In this session, we will build a small web app to interact with a simple event management GraphQL API, allowing users to view or create new events. We will cover the basics of using React to render a web app with AWS Amplify, AWS Mobile Hub to provision and manage cloud resources, and AWS AppSync to host a secure and scaleable GraphQL endpoint on AWS with data backed by Amazon DynamoDB.
