    From Idea to MVP: Accelerate application development with AWS Amplify

    Application development is rapidly evolving and by integrating cloud computing technologies, we are able to accelerate our application development process. In this session, learn how to develop a scalable, secure, and automatically managed back-end — along with important features such as real-time, offline data, authentication, and analysis service for your applications. The key takeaway for this session is to understand the benefits of faster development, easier deployment, and how improved application release with AWS Amplify can help in accelerating your application development process.

    Speaker: Donnie Prakoso, Senior Developer Advocate, AWS

    Getting started with DevOps on AWS

    Imagine this: your developers completed the first version of your application and you are now ready to go to market. You take the piece of code, fire up an Amazon EC2 instance and copy them into it. You invite all your users to visit your site and you realised the application begin to show errors and failures. Your developers then individually come back with a fix for each error you have identified, but there are so many versions of them, and you do not know how to merge them. You realised you need to take the site offline in order to deploy the fix. Your users start to post their frustrations on your social media channel and your competitors take the opportunity to introduce them their product. This is in fact a common scenario that many teams face today.

    Human errors are inevitable. Regardless of how much engineering efforts you put into building a resilient application and handling edge cases, sometimes a case beyond our reach turns a benign failure into a catastrophic one. Therefore, it is essential to leverage some key DevOps principles and use CI/CD pipelines so that you can iterate and quickly release features while at the same time, minimize your “blast radius” to your users. Automation is key. In this session, we walk you through some of the continuous integration and delivery tools to setup in AWS and help raise the bar to prevent costly deployment failures.

    Speaker: Loh Yiang Meng, Solutions Architect, AWS

    Give unlimited scale storage to your application with Amazon S3 and File Gateway

    Having a highly scalable and durable storage system is vital for your application. Application requirements to store files can be different - you can store data via API or store and access data via the file protocol, e.g. NFS, SMB. In this session, learn the two distinct design patterns to store data - Serverless design with Amazon S3 and AWS Lambda. Find out how it can help with a variety of modern application requirements. When a file interface is needed, use File Gateway to upload your data to Amazon S3. You can also use the analytics tool on the data uploaded. In addition, if you have not been using AWS or just started to build on AWS, these patterns are perfect to get you started.
