09:00 - 10:00

Opening Keynote: Developer2020
Developers pioneered cloud innovation. But as the rate of change accelerates, and the complexity of projects increases, how can Developers innovate and build faster? Join Glenn Gore, Chief Architect AWS, to explore why it’s never been a better time to build. Learn what Good Difficulty vs Bad Difficulty looks like during an innovation cycle. Understand when to use Microservices in your development life cycle and why sometimes Monoliths might even be a better fit. Gain insight into what a Developer will look like in 2020 and understand how AI and Machine Learning will change the way you code, enabling you to build and test code faster with even greater accuracy, and lower cost.

Running Containers at Scale on AWS with Amazon ECS
Running and managing large scale applications can be a challenge and often requires operating complex container management infrastructure. Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) is a highly scalable, high performance container management solution that takes care of these challenges for you, allowing you to focus on developing your application. In this session we explore how to run well-architected container-based applications at scale on ECS, taking a deep dive into scaling, custom scheduling, and secrets management.

Nickk Sun, Solutions Architect, Amazon Web Services


Harnessing Artificial Intelligence in your Applications
AWS offers a family of AI services that provide cloud-native Machine Learning and Deep Learning technologies allowing developers to build an entirely new generation of apps that can see, hear, speak, understand, and interact with the real world. In this session we take a look at Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Polly, and Amazon Lex.

Adam Larter, Developer Solutions Architect, Amazon Web Services

11:10 - 11:40

Putting the Security in DevSecOps
In this session, we will take a look at how to leverage AWS native services to automate the security that protects your business. Gain a deep understanding of what is required to build your DevSecOps CI/CD pipeline and automate code-review with pre and post analysis to provide quality assurance and auditability for every deployment.

Phil Rodrigues, Security Solutions Architect, Amazon Web Services
Pierre Liddle, Solutions Architect, Amazon Web Services


Mobile Application Development and Testing on AWS
Every business needs a mobile app and AWS has the tools and services to make it easy to design, build, and test apps. In this session we will build a mobile app using AWS Mobile Hub that covers authentication authorisation using Amazon Cognito User Pools and implement the application backend logic using AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway. We will discuss how to integrate with 3rd party applications and demonstrate how to create Web and Hybrid Mobile App solutions.

Arden Packeer, Enterprise Solutions Architect, Amazon Web Services

11:50 - 12:20

Scaling Your Data with Amazon DynamoDB
Amazon DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL database service that provides fast and predictable performance with seamless scalability. In this session we dive deep and review the new features of DynamoDB - DAX, Auto Scaling and TTL - that work together to accommodate different application workload patterns.

Tom McMeekin, Solutions Architect, Amazon Web Services


Develop, Build, Deploy, and Instrument Your Application with AWS CodeStar and AWS X-Ray
AWS CodeStar is a cloud-based service for creating, managing, and working with software development projects on AWS. In this session we look at how you can provision a full CI/CD pipeline in minutes with more than 20 templates to get you coding your application quickly. We also show how, once deployed, you can gain valuable insights into your application's performance with AWS X-Ray.

Tara Walker, Technical Evangelist, Amazon Web Services

12:20 - 13:20 Lunch    
13:20 - 13:50

Optimising Your Service Offering as SaaS
In this session, you will gain an understanding of the key business and technical considerations and decisions you need to make to successfully transition a single-tenanted monolithic application to a multi-tenanted SaaS offering on AWS. We take a look at how Amazon API Gateway and Amazon Cognito make it easy to secure your service offering and track usage at scale, and how a microservices architecture enables your organisation to optimise and operate your SaaS solution on AWS.

Daniel Zoltak, Solutions Architect, Amazon Web Services


.NET Core & Continuous Delivery on AWS
Join us in this session to see how easy it is to get .NET Core applications running in AWS and configured with a continuous delivery pipeline that enables rapid application development, testing, and deployment. We will examine different continuous delivery options available and explore .NET Core support on AWS.

Jason Fulghum, Software Development Manager, Amazon Web Services

14:00 - 14:30

Serverless IoT Workloads with AWS Greengrass and AWS Step Functions
AWS Greengrass brings autonomous control and compute to the edge allowing you to build applications that provide business value in the form of predictive maintenance, resource optimisation, and management of complex control systems. In this session we look at how to leverage inputs such as sensors and streaming data with outputs like relays and actuators to coordinate the components of distributed IoT applications.

Shane Baldacchino, Solutions Architect, Amazon Web Services


Supercharging Serverless Identity with Amazon Cognito
Whether you are building mobile or web applications, you often need to enable a secure way for users to sign up and sign in. Amazon Cognito enables you to secure your mobile and web applications by providing a comprehensive identity solution for end user management, registration, sign-in, and security. In this session, we will walk through the feature set, which includes serverless flows for user management and sign-in in a fully managed user directory. Additionally, we will cover key use cases including taking advantage of the built-in support of user sign-up and sign-in forms that are customisable and brandable, social identity provider integration via Facebook, Google, Login with Amazon, and enterprise directory integration via SAML federation and OAuth2 support.

Ed Lima, Solutions Architect, Amazon Web Services

14:40 - 15:10

Advanced Continous Delivery on AWS
Continuous delivery makes teams more agile and quickens the pace of innovation. Too often, though, teams adopt continuous delivery without defining the meta components or putting the right safety mechanisms in place. In this session, we'll start from the meta components and transform a typical software release process into one that will scale and is safe. We'll use DevOps techniques like continuous integration, a variety of non-production testing stages, rollbacks, redundancy, canary deployments, and synthetic tests. We'll use AWS services such as AWS Lambda, CloudFormation, CodePipeline, CodeBuild, CodeDeploy, and CloudWatch alarms and dashboards.

Warren Paull, Enterprise Solutions Architect, Amazon Web Services


Streaming Data and Analytics for Synthetic Worlds
The advent of synthetic worlds such as those provided by Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and simulators provide an ideal opportunity to use cloud services to ingest near real-time streaming data from within the synthetic world. This session will explore methods of instrumenting these synthetic worlds so they can stream statistics, metrics, and performance data into AWS. Real-time analytics, machine learning, and voice interaction/feedback along with visualisation are  explored as a means to interact with and understand this data.

Marc Teichtahl, Solutions Architect Manager, Amazon Web Services

15:10 - 15:40 Afternoon Tea Break    
15:40 - 16:25

A Developer's Perspective on Future Trends
AI, ML, IoT and Big Data are transforming industries around the world. But where should developers focus time and money now? AWS Emerging Technology Expert, Olivier Klein, will share his top future trends and demonstrate the role that AWS is playing in helping developers innovate and build. In this interactive session, Olivier will showcase how to fit and train your own AI and Machine Learning models and show how easy it is to get started with fully managed AI services, which are only an API call away. He will address how to effectively manage the continuous amount of IoT devices which start sensing the physical world and Amazon's perspective how services like AWS Greengrass help to bring logic and Artificial Intelligence to the edge location. Lastly he will discuss new concepts around Big Data, the transforming effect new services and tools have on the data scientist role, and how we, as developers, can help shape this new exciting world to gain valuable and actionable insights quickly.
