    Rapidly modernize your Microsoft .NET applications on AWS (Level 300)
    AWS is a great place to run your .NET applications. However, we often encounter customers who are running legacy .NET full framework applications, struggling to move them into containers and .NET core. In this session, we explore .NET porting assistant, AWS Microservice Extractor for .NET and Babelfish. These technologies allow you to rapidly modernize your .NET applications, analyze, and convert your .NET full framework applications into .NET core, and run MS SQL server-based applications on Amazon Aurora. We also share AWS Optimization and Licensing Assessment (AWS OLA) to save on third party licensing costs and help you run resources more efficiently.

    Dive deep into technical stacks, learn how AWS experts have helped solve real-world problems for customers, try out these demos with step-by-step guides, and walk away with the ability to implement these or similar solutions in your own organization.

    Confidential computing with AWS Nitro Enclaves (Level 200)
    Today, organizations need high-level of security for their data and encryption keys for data protection. Data breaches can cost millions in loss of revenue and downtime, negatively impact consumer trust, and brand reputation in significant ways. Confidential computing isolates sensitive information and puts it in a separate, protected enclave and no one can access the data, except an attested piece of application code. AWS Nitro Enclaves is the solution to modernize application infrastructure. It moves confidential computing from on-premise HSM based devices to the AWS cloud, making them cost effective and scalable. In this demo, we share how AWS Nitro Enclaves enables customers to create modern applications with isolated compute environments to protect and securely process highly sensitive data and private keys. We explain how AWS Nitro Enclaves cryptographic attestation can ensure only authorized code is running, and integration with the AWS Key Management Service, to access sensitive material. Gain a firm understanding of the various application components required to build a confidential computing solution based on AWS Nitro Enclave. The demo also covers use cases for multi-party computation (MPC), blockchain, machine learning (ML), crypto, secure wallet, and banking transactions.

    Serverless Security Remediation Chatbot (Level 200)
    Many organizations struggle with the use of cyber security to notify, prevent and manage any potential security incidents. In this demo, we showcase how to build a serverless security remediation chatbot to lower the barriers to entry for those looking to auto-remediate their security incidents through a simple conversation with the chatbot. We share how you can remediate and take preventive measures to better secure your infrastructure on the cloud. We explain how to use Amazon Lex and AWS Lambda to remediate Amazon S3 public access and uncover high risk ports for Amazon EC2. Learn how to check root MFA enablement and list security hub findings to improve your security posture.

    Smart interview bot using deep learning (Level 200)
    Often enterprises have difficulties shortlisting the right candidates for technical roles as it is as challenging to conduct interviews with consistency and efficiency. It takes lot of manual effort to interview a candidate and assess his/her capabilities. Given the COVID situation, it is equally challenging to find interviewer’s time to schedule and materialize the interviews. In this demo, we showcase a front-end web portal to mimic the interview experience where the candidate, presented with a tech question can provide answer verbally or submit a written answer. This demo then uses a machine learning model with serverless technology to incorporate event-driven compute service to evaluate and assess the candidate’s answers for its correctness, and revert with a score within minutes.
