Practical Cloud Development with Amazon Web Services

The cloud in general, and cloud services specifically, is an important consideration when looking towards the future and technology. This consideration reaches down to the skills level. This workshop will help satisfy those skills needs by providing you real-life, hands-on, examples using Amazon Web Services to solve business problems. Expect a mixture of deep-dive into the code as well as high-level discussions of “how-to” and “what-if”.

This workshop will cover:

• Identity and access management and security – keeping it safe
• AWS Toolkit and SDKs – working with AWS services within the IDE
• “Simple” web apps – build and deploy a web application into a VM or a container
• Managed data and\or purpose-built databases - learn to use both managed data and purpose-built database systems
• Building functions to run Serverless – why rent a whole or partial machine when you can break it down by the processing period
• Tying Serverless functions together with an API Gateway
• Real-world web application – pull it all together for those applications that are more real world

Curmudgeonly .NET Advocate in a Modern Apps world

With over 25 years in software development (almost 15 of which is .NET), Dr. Bill brings a pragmatic (curmudgeonly?) approach to software development. With much of that time spent in consulting, he has worked on many different projects and used many different designs and approaches. He recently switched to the dark side and uses his development experience in a product management role where he acts as a .NET developer advocate with AWS, helping AWS to build a better and more rich .NET developer experience.
