    Cloud security fundamentals: What every builder needs to know (Level 100)

    AWS offers an ever-growing landscape of services designed for a wide range of workloads in the cloud. But how do you secure the different types of workload? This session, intended for security-minded builders, introduces the fundamental AWS security building blocks that can be simply, easily and authoritatively applied to your workloads built on AWS.

    Speaker: Dean Samuels, Chief Technologist, ASEAN, AWS

  • Build your applications
  • Build your applications

    Learn the tools, frameworks and processes to build resilient and highly-available applications that scale and respond in milliseconds.

    Containers and serverless: Choosing the optimal compute for your modern applications (Level 100)

    Which should I choose? Containers or Serverless? This session answers the question by walking you through common architecture patterns for building modern applications. Learn when it makes sense to use container image support for AWS Lambda or run event-driven and scheduled workloads at scale with AWS Fargate.

    Speaker: Cameron Senese, Senior Container Specialist, AWS

    Deploying your first web app in minutes (Level 200)

    From serving content for static websites and single-page applications, to scaling up server-side web applications, AWS has the right tools to get the job done quickly and securely. In this session, we explain how to get started and host your first web application on AWS in a matter of minutes. Learn more about the various options available on AWS and how each option is appropriate for the different use case. With each of the option, we show you how to deploy your website or application with the use of illustrative demos.

    Speaker: Derek Bingham, Senior Developer Advocate, AWS

    Getting started with containers on AWS (Level 200)

    Containers are a powerful way for developers to package and deploy their applications. They are lightweight and provide a consistent, portable software environment for applications to easily run and scale. However, deploying containers still create another layer of complexity and that's where Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) can help you. Amazon ECS makes it easy to use containers as a building block for your applications by eliminating the need for you to install, operate, and scale your cluster management infrastructure. It provides a simple yet powerful way to deploy modern applications in AWS. Join us in this session packed with demos to learn how you can easily deploy, release and run containerized applications using Amazon ECS together with Amazon Elastic Container Registry (Amazon ECR) and AWS Copilot to streamline the process.

    Speaker: Donnie Prakoso, Senior Developer Advocate, AWS

    Increase availability with AWS observability solutions (Level 200)

    Performance monitoring is an important part of any application. By understanding the health of your application, you will know whether it is functioning as expected and therefore will proactively react should it become unhealthy. Additionally, it also provides access to critical resources when needed and limits the potential financial impact of an application outage. Hence, a highly available application design is critical. Join this session to learn how AWS observability solutions can help you proactively detect, efficiently investigate, and quickly resolve operational issues. We show you how to add monitoring, logging and distributed tracing to your applications using Amazon CloudWatch and AWS X-Ray, which increase the availability of your applications.

    Speaker: Rohini Gaonkar, Senior Developer Advocate, AISPL

    Getting started with DevOps by implementing Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and Release Pipeline (Level 200)

    DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization's ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity. In general, practicing DevOps enables organizations to better serve customers and compete effectively in the market. Infrastructure as Code and release pipeline with CI/CD are two of best practices in DevOps for entry level developers who are just getting started. In this session, learn how to implement IaC and CI/CD using AWS Cloud Development Kit. We show you step-by-step demos to help you get started. We also explain the overall concept of IaC and CI/CD including the AWS services and developer tools for seamless integration with your development workflow.

    Getting started with AWS Startup Programs and building your MVP on AWS (Level 100)

    Begin your startup journey with AWS and get to know the benefits provided by our startup team, including the AWS Activate program, which is designed for startups and early stage entrepreneurs to offer you the resources needed to get started on AWS. In this session, we introduce the concept of Minimum Viable Product (MVP). Building a MVP is something all startups do but it's an unusual process. Unlike a prototype, MVPs focus your build on the necessary features including the tools and methodologies which subsequently allows you to  get to market quickly and add features as you scale. Find out how to pick the right technologies and use pre-configured architectures to speed up your development. Get an overview on how startups use services like Amazon API Gateway, AWS Amplify, AWS Lambda, Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), Amazon Lightsail and database options to help launch your product.
