On the cloud, security is priority number one. In this session, you will learn the “best of the best” practices for operating securely at scale on AWS, taken from real customer examples. We introduce the AWS Security Best Practices whitepaper and covers a range of security recommendations for Identity and Access Management, Logging and Monitoring, Infrastructure Security, and Data Protection. We’ll incorporate practical examples found in the Center for Internet Security’s CIS AWS Foundation and CIS AWS Three-Tier Web Architecture benchmarks. Come learn how to "Just Turn It On!"

Did you know that AWS enables builders to architect solutions based on their price tolerance? Beyond the typical challenges of function, performance, and scale, you can make your application cost effective. This session uses practical examples aimed at architects and developers. Using code and AWS CloudFormation in concert with services such as Amazon EC2, Amazon ECS, Lambda, Amazon RDS, Amazon SQS, Amazon SNS, Amazon S3 and more, we demonstrate the financial advantages of different architectural decisions. Attendees will walk away with concrete examples, as well as a new perspective on how they can build systems economically and effectively.

Terraform by Hashicorp, an APN Technology Partner and AWS DevOps Competency Partner, is an open source tool that enables users to create, update, and version their AWS production infrastructure. It arms operators with the ability to write infrastructure as code and reproduce configuration files to share among teams and reproduce in multiple locations. Geoscience Australia uses science and technology with tools such as Terraform on AWS to understand the geology and geography of Australia, focusing on securing Australia’s resources, building Earth Observation infrastructure, and analyzing geoscientific data. Join us for an inside look at how Geoscience Australia is taking advantage of this and other innovations – including Packer and CI/CD – to drive change, improve developer experience, and deliver value to users.

Experience how live, virtual 3D worlds rendered with Amazon Lumberyard – a free, cross-platform, 3D game engine – interconnect with IoT devices in the real world. This session illustrates how AWS IoT can be used to remotely control inanimate objects with Bluetooth, namely Sphero robots. By using AWS Lambda and AWS IoT, we will create bi-directional communication between moving robots that detect collisions in a virtual world created through Amazon's game engine. Discover how voice commands control physical and virtual robots using AWS IoT through Alexa Skills Kit and the Amazon Echo.

This session showcases how genomic research has leapfrogged to the forefront of big data and cloud solutions. We outline how to deal with “big” (many samples) and “wide” (many features per sample) data on Apache Spark, how to keep runtime constant by using automatically scalable micro services (i.e., AWS Lambda), and how AWS technology has powered research use cases at CSIRO.
