About this event

Talk #1: “Kubernetes on AWS — how to manage containers with a style” by Tomek Stachlewski

During this session we’ll focus on AWS cloud and EKS service (managed Kubernetes). We’ll see how to run & manage fleet of servers and how to run containerized applications on top of it. Additionally we’ll look how to optimize clusters with spot instances (to minimize costs) and we’ll see some native EKS integration with DNS and Service Discovery.

Talk #2: “Let’s build! Building serverless app based on AWS cloud & AI” by Tomek Stachlewski

In the serverless world 1 hour may be enough not only to build 1, but even 2 serverless applications. And I’ll try to prove it during this presentation.

In the first part we will build an app which — in line with today’s trends — will use AI (text-to-speech, image recognition, language detection). We will be able to communicate with it and it will be able to understand what we are saying (we will be leveraging Amazon Alexa functions here).

In the second part we will build distributed app, deployed in data centers on two continents. Application will be mimicking architectures of e.g. Netflix and will replicate it’s data across continents and will be resilient enough to handle data center unavailability.

Tomasz Stachlewski will be doing both presentations this time. Few words about him below.
