    Talk / Amazon Web Services: The pace of innovation

    AWS launched in 2006, and since then has released more than 1000 services, features, and major announcements. Every year, AWS outpaces the previous year in launches and continuously accelerates the pace of innovation across the organization.

    Ever wonder how we formulate customer-centric ideas, turn them into features and services, and get them to market quickly? This session dives into how an idea becomes a service at AWS and how we continue to evolve the service after release through innovation at every level. We'll spill the beans on how we manage operational excellence across our services to ensure the highest possible availability. Come and learn about the rapid pace of innovation at AWS, and the culture that formulates magic behind the scenes.

    Workshop / AWS Zombie Microservices Workshop

    A widespread viral infection transmitted through bites that cause human corpses to reanimate has spread to every major metropolitan area around the world. In order to fight this battle, we invite you with great urgency to register and attend an AWS Zombie Microservices Workshop to rebuild what remains of our great civilisation. The AWS Lambda Signal Corps has built a serverless communications system using AWS Lambda, Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon API Gateway to connect survivors. The Corps will be travelling across the globe to deliver workshops on building this communications system. After introducing the basics of building microservices with Lambda and API Gateway, we look to you to add additional life saving features - food caches, panic buttons, etc. - to the platform. The fate of our civilization is in your hands.
