Security for Complex Networks on AWS
Teri Radichel - Director of Security Strategy, WatchGuard
When organizations start using AWS, they may initially use a single VPC and a very simple network implementation. In many cases, however, companies are leveraging multiple VPCs, regions and accounts. Companies are also connecting cloud networks to corporate headquarters and remote locations. They may even be connecting different cloud providers. This presentation will consider some of these use cases and the implications of connecting different networks. Material covered will include security considerations, sample architectures and tools that can help protect your account and your data.

Learning AWS the Hard Way
Valentino Volonghi - CTO, AdRoll
AdRoll has learned many valuable lessons after almost a decade of using AWS and growing from a small startup to an international business processing over 4 trillion data points each day across the world. As it often happens when using any product to its full extent, some unexpected behaviors start to show up to teach you lessons that are sometimes particularly expensive and at times fun. We'll talk about using Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon DynamoDB, all with an eye on security as we process 4 trillion data points each day and keep tabs at the speed of light.

Curious about what makes an open source project successful? What makes it fail? In this session, We’ll take a look at the dozen or so open source projects I’ve started and contributed to (some successful, some less so) and cover what to focus on, how to build and support a community, and what drives engagement so your own open source projects can be a success.
