Our July meetup focusses on AWS and Serverless technology. We're very excited to have Danilo Poccia, Chief Evangeslist (EMEA) at AWS, join us to discuss what 2021 brings us in the ways of Serverless and what we can do with the services available to help streamline our workloads and applications. NE:Tech will be hosted online via the attached Zoom link. Although we would like to return to face-to-face meetups, the health and safety of our members is a top priority. We are paying close attention to the government guidelines and will return to physical meetups when it is safe and sensible to do so.

What Can You Do with Serverless – In 2021!


Development / Writing Code

Serverless is always evolving (faster than any definition) and each year new capabilities simplify existing workloads and enable new applications to be implemented in an easier, more efficient way. At AWS, we focused our efforts to increase performance, give options on how to package and deploy, optimize costs for faster interactions, and simplify service integrations. Looking at some recent launches, we introduce the reasoning behind the new features, and how to use them to reduce architecture complexity, including real world examples of what AWS customers are doing, so that you can focus on creating value for YOUR customers.
