AWS at scale
Presented by Chris Alexander - Approx 1 hour 15 mins

A look into using Amazon Web Services (AWS) at large scale. Infrastructure and platform as a service are rapidly growing as means to provide highly available, fault tolerant and hugely scalable applications. Take an in-depth look at services available on the AWS cloud, along with strategies, best practices, code examples and demos to allow you to successfully deploy, maintain and monitor mission critical applications on AWS.

Designing your architecture and application with the cloud in mind. Little-known perks of EC2. Security and AWS cloud networking; data storage and distribution; messaging and monitoring. Handling large amounts of AWS resources and templating architecture. Tips and tricks. Presented along with code snippets and live demos.

Who should attend:

Anyone who is familiar with the concept of the cloud but wants to know more about what services are available. Those curious about the process of designing and maintaining an entirely cloud-based platform. Anyone who wishes to know about managing a complex and multi-tiered infrastructure for high availability and scale.


Chris Alexander is a Developer Experience Engineer at, and architect of their all-AWS cloud hosting. He has spent the last two years provisioning, monitoring, scaling and managing countless AWS resources while ensuring the platform has high availability and durability.
