    • Building and deploying serverless powered web apps with AWS Amplify

      Since its release in 2015, GraphQL has risen in popularity as a compelling alternative to REST for developing APIs thanks to its network efficiency, client-driven design, and technical flexibility. But deploying a highly available and scaleable GraphQL server can be a challenge. In this session, we'll build a simple web app that interacts with a backend powered by a GraphQL API. We'll cover the basics of using React to render a web app that talks to AWS Services using AWS Amplify, and shows how to use AWS AppSync to host a secure and scaleable GraphQL endpoint with data backed by DynamoDB.

    • Analysing Data in Real-time

      We all want to analyze and visualize streaming data for real-time operational insights into our applications and infrastructure, and to make more informed decisions. But streaming analytics are hard at scale. Before you realize you can end up with a very sophisticated architecture with different moving parts you need to secure, monitor, and scale independently. In this session, you will learn how to work with real-time data, from ingestion to visualization and monitoring, at any scale, by leveraging the managed services provided by AWS.

    • Creating Resiliency Through Destruction

      With the wide adoption of micro-services and large-scale distributed systems, architectures have grow increasingly complex and hard to understand. Worse, the software systems running them have become extremely difficult to debug and test, increasing the risk of outages. With these new challenges, new tools are required and since failures have become more and more chaotic in nature, we must turn to chaos engineering in order to reveal failures before they become outages. In this talk, I will first introduce chaos engineering and show the audience how to start practicing chaos engineering on the AWS cloud. I will walk through the tools and methods they can use to inject failures in their architecture in order to make them more resilient to failure.
