    Dev - BUILD it!

    Modern Front End development with AWS Amplify

    Speaker: Eng-Hwa Tan, WWCS Solutions Architects, AWS 

    Learn how to build modern front end application (React JS) — how to add analytics, user authentication and backend API calls easily using AWS Amplify. AWS Amplify is designed to give a declarative interface to frontend developers looking to perform common actions using cloud services in a scalable and secure manner. These capabilities allow developers writing JavaScript applications (eg: AngularJS, React, Vue etc) to programmatically apply best practices with common abstractions for faster development cycles.

    All attendees must bring their own laptop with the current version of Chrome or Firefox installed.


    Time: 10:45am – 12:45pm

    AWS Technical Workshop
    Dev - BUILD it!

    Build modern backend without worrying about servers

    Speaker: Arthi Jaganathan, WWCS Solutions Architects, AWS

    Learn how to run application in a container without having to manage servers. We will also build a clickstream analysis microservice using AWS Lambda and Amazon Kinesis Firehose. Modern applications isolate business logic, optimize reuse and iteration, and remove overhead everywhere possible. Modern apps are built using services that enable you to focus on writing code while automating infrastructure maintenance tasks.

    All attendees must bring their own laptop with the current version of Chrome or Firefox installed.


    Time: 1:45pm – 3:45pm

    AWS Technical Workshop
    Ops - RUN it!

    Diving Deep on Application Development

    Speaker: Michael Evans, WWCS Solutions Architects, AWS

    Dive into best practices for tasks such as deployment, monitoring, and debugging that developers can use for application lifecycle management, CI/CD, monitoring, and diagnostics. We will build CI/CD pipelines that automatically build, test, and deploy your applications using AWS CodePipeline, AWS CodeBuild, and AWS CloudFormation. You will also learn how you can embrace security without slowing down by automating preventive and detective controls as part of your pipeline.

    All attendees must bring their own laptop with the current version of Chrome or Firefox installed.


    Time: 10:45am – 12:45pm

    AWS Technical Workshop
    Ops - RUN it!

    Build with Containers on Amazon EKS

    Speaker:  Eng-Hwa Tan, WWCS Solutions Architects, AWS

    Learn how to define and launch a fully managed Kubernetes cluster using Amazon EKS. We'll then build a CI/CD pipeline for our sample application and deploy it on Amazon EKS. We'll finish up by setting up logging, monitoring and service mesh for our EKS cluster. Amazon EKS runs the Kubernetes management infrastructure across multiple AWS Availability Zones. It runs upstream Kubernetes and is certified Kubernetes conformant, so applications managed by Amazon EKS are fully compatible with applications managed by any standard Kubernetes environment.

    All attendees must bring their own laptop with the current version of Chrome or Firefox installed.

You will also learn how to set up governance and data quality controls. We will build a data processing pipeline and Data Lake using Amazon S3 for storing data, Amazon Kinesis for real-time streaming data, AWS Glue to automatically catalog datasets. You will also learn how to interactively author ETL scripts in an Amazon SageMaker notebook connected to an AWS Glue development endpoint, and how to deploy your ETL scripts into production by turning it into managed AWS Glue jobs and add appropriate AWS Glue scheduling and triggering conditions.

    All attendees must bring their own laptop with the current version of Chrome or Firefox installed.

    Data - DNA it!

    Machine Learning in Action, Building Predictive Models

    Speaker: Pedro Paez, WWCS Solutions Architects, AWS

    In this workshop, you will learn how to train a machine learning model using Amazon ML technologies. By the end of this workshop we will build an end-to-end pipeline that serves real-time predictions on streaming data. As data exponentially grows in organizations, there is an increasing need to use machine learning (ML) to gather insights from this data at scale and to use those insights to perform real-time predictions on incoming data.

    All attendees must bring their own laptop with the current version of Chrome or Firefox installed.

    Predict the Future with Time Series Forecasting and Deep Neural Networks

    Speaker: Benedict Lee, Technical Trainer, AWS

    Forecasting is an entry point to applying machine learning across many industries. Whether it’s optimizing the supply chain through better product demand forecasts, allocating computing resources more effectively by predicting web server traffic, or saving lives by staffing hospitals to meet patient needs, there are few domains where accurate forecasts don’t return their investments quickly. This bootcamp is designed to provide you with the conceptual understanding and tools you need to apply forecasting in your own work.
