Stockholm | Friday, 31 January 2020
The AWS Community Day is a free full day event for AWS users organized by the community. Once a year all AWS users come together to network, learn from each other and get inspired. At this event, there will be no vendor talks, no partner talks, no sponsored talks. All speakers are expert AWS users from the community - including AWS User Group leaders and AWS Heroes - with real life experience in the AWS topics they are presenting.

Talks & Speakers
We strive to cover all technical levels, so you can have an interesting day no matter if you're an AWS expert or just getting started in the cloud.
An intro to AWS account security and and how we are moving our team at The LEGO Group towards security best practices by giving them one less thing to worry about and taking away their personal AWS keys (and making the process of acquiring temporary AWS keys as easy as running a command).
Everything fails, all the time. This is what Dr. Vogels likes to say. This is what we have learned over and over again while implementing serverless data streaming at scale. I’ll take the example of my customer, Yle, and talk about the services we used, issues we faced and lessons we learned.
GitOps in action will be a talk about GitOps with focus on demonstration. We build a CI/CD pipeline, using AWS Code products, then we integrate everything with an Alexa skill to be able to trigger builds, get status, deploy using voice.
In this talk I will take you through the challenge of testing a cloud-native application. I will cover the challenges when developing solutions on top of serverless components which you cannot run on your own machine and how I designed a BDD driven approach to run the integration tests.
Streamlining microservices communication has always been a challenge. This caused confusion and proved challenging for engineers. AWS EventBridge alleviates these concerns and offers a unified approach to employ even driven computing. This talk will guide you to achieve this with real use cases!
Telecom providers still debates how to embrace virtulization to modernise their data centers and are stuck with monolithic applications… This presentation share experiences building a platform providing serverless functions for real time communications.
In this session, AWS Serverless Hero Yan Cui will share the open-source tools and frameworks that he has found so useful in his journey with serverless. The list features libraries, deployment frameworks, plugins, middlewares, Lambda layers and much more!
I’ve been running CDK in production almost a year now in a big media company; This talk focuses on the best practices I’ve found working with CDK: How to simplify complex architectures, how to manage multi-account & multi-environments and how to refactor shared functionality into components.
In this talk I’ll give an introduction to Amazon Alexa and its ecosystem. Attendees will see how to build Alexa skill from scratch by programming AWS Lambda function in Node.js, data will be stored in DynamoDB database, and I’ll show how to use SSML (Speech Synthesis Markup Language).
The favorite database at Trustpilot is DynamoDB, but this wasn’t always the case. In this talk you’ll hear talk about what we’ve learned from working with DynamoDB, misconceptions and mistakes. We’ll look at some real life examples of how to model your data in DynamoDB and how to use of its features.
Having an attractive assortment is important for any retail company in the grocery industry. This talk describes machine learning methods that analyze large sets of shopping cart data and automatically identifies relationships between products, which can be very helpful for assortment planners.
Building a new application? Which database should you choose? Should it be relational/NoSQL/both? How much re-skilling my team would need? Is there a simpler way? Sure there is. I plan to cover all the DB offerings in AWS portfolio. This will help people to choose the right DB for their next app.
Amit Bar Oz
During this session, we will discuss why using K8s: The core concepts, architecture, real-life scenarios and what are the difference of using vanilla K8s vs Amazon EKS. In addition, we will discuss how to scale your K8s infrastructure while saving 80% of your cloud costs by using EC2 Spot Instances.
Learn what happens when you task group of engineers to manage and optimize AWS capacity worth of several millions euros in a month. What are the easy wins you absolutely must do and how to drive non-trivial optimizations.
There will be held four workshops during the AWS Community Day. These will have limited number of seats and reserved seating. Information about when reservations open will be sent to everyone with a registered ticket for the community day.
In this workshop you will learn how to troubleshoot issues in your serverless application, including log aggregation, monitoring & alerting, capturing and forwarding correlation IDs and tracing executions through both synchronous and asynchronous micro-service communications. You will learn about AWS services such as CloudWatch, CloudWatch Logs and X-Ray, how they work and where they fall short, and how tools such as Lumigo can help you go further.
In this workshop I’ll give an introduction to Amazon Alexa and its ecosystem. Attendees will learn how to build Alexa skill from scratch by programming AWS Lambda function in Node.js, data will be stored in DynamoDB database, and I’ll show how to use SSML (Speech Synthesis Markup Language).
Let me explain and demonstrate how Terraform AWS modules (https://github.com/terraform-aws-modules) which are used by hundreds of companies worldwide can help you to build your AWS infrastructure in minutes.
Bruno Amaro Almeida
A workshop, tailored for technical folks without prior data science knowledge, to learn hands-on about AI and ML in AWS. Includes an overview of algorithms and the concepts of data collection and prep., and on a practical level AWS services such as: Sagemaker, Rekognition, Comprehend & Transcribe.
