We're looking at serverless and how to start a tech meetup as part of our September NE:Tech, taking place at the brand new Everyman Cinema in the centre of Newcastle (https://www.everymancinema.com/newcastle). This month we're joined by 2 seasoned speakers talking about two wildly different subjects.

How we built a production application with Serverless and AWS for under $100.basicCloud
No servers allowed
I'll go over the application architecture, some design decisions, how it all works together, and all the costs associated with building, testing, and running.
I've been developing software for over 12 years. Started my career at Accenture and learned a lot. Have moved around to a few different places in the NE, always looking for interesting things to work on, not necessarily things I've done before. For the last (almost) 2 years I've been at Grid Smarter Cities working on a virtual parking application, a marketplace (think Deliveroo for local market traders), and another application to help disabled passengers needing assistance at airports. I've been really liking using Serverless with AWS over that time.
