Continue Evolving Your MVP & Exceed User Expectations

AWS Startup Loft

Please Register Here

About the event:
When it comes to launching your MVP, user experience is everything. But few early-stage founders have the time, team or technical ability to develop their MVP at the speed their growing user base demands. This workshop identifies the key components of modern web and mobile applications, and how AWS enables quicker iteration and deployment to expedite the evolution of your MVP. From hosting to back-end integration, we’ll explore the AWS framework for end-to-end solutions, so you can innovate in one place and continue to meet user demands for a feature-rich, functional app. You’ll also see firsthand how to adapt a Figma design into a React web application with AWS Amplify Studio, AWS AppSync, and Amazon DynamoDB. Dedicated Solution Architects are available to answer your questions after the session.

The Power of Purpose - Built Databases for Scaling Your MVP

AWS Startup Loft

About the event:
From user profiles and data visualization to systems of record and recommendation engines, purpose-built databases are a fundamental part of any MVP. No matter what functions or features you’re building, the right database makes it possible to deploy them swiftly and scale them with ease. In this session, we’ll give you a top-level introduction to a variety of purpose-built databases and their functions, including relational, key-value, time-series and in-memory databases, among others. Beyond learning common use-cases, we’ll also give you a firsthand look at how to manage purpose-built databases within the AWS Console. Dedicated Solution Architects are available to answer your questions after the session.

About the event:
Join Daily and AWS at the SF AWS Startup Loft for an exciting event about the future of interactive live video. During the event, you’ll get access to exclusive content, including:

  • Why today’s consumer expectations for dynamic live video make WebRTC the ideal solution for building the lowest latency interactive streaming experience you need to secure your competitive advantage (compared to other protocols such as RTMP and HLS).
  • A hands-on workshop run by WebRTC experts where you’ll have the opportunity to create interactive video experiences that generate a “wow” factor for your end user. We’ll cover how you can quickly build an interactive video experience with custom layouts and animated graphics like toasts (the text animation kind, not artisanal sourdough), polls, queues, and watermarks.
  • A talk from Daily co-founder and WebRTC expert Kwindla Kramer on the latest trends and future of interactive live streaming.
  • Bonus: A sneak peek into fun, pre-beta features made by Daily developers during our most recent team hackathon.

You’ll walk away with new inspiration you can take back to your team on how to use WebRTC to build highly stylized and interactive video experiences that allow you to reach hundreds of thousands of people all over the globe.

About Daily:
Driven by a mission to build the best WebRTC developer platform on the market, Daily’s video SDKs allow engineering teams to integrate world-class video and audio experiences into any product for any use case.

Architect Microservices with Seamless Scalability In-Mind

AWS Startup Loft

Please Register Here

About the event:
Microservices are the foundation for a robust MVP and the key to enriching your app’s functionality. But for many, there remains some underlying questions: What are microservices and why should I use them? Should you build on instances, containers, or serverless? How do you choose the right compute option (EC2, ECS/EKS, Fargate, or Lambda)? What differentiates synchronous and asynchronous architecture—and how does it map to your startup’s use cases?
In this session, we’ll answer these questions and explore different ways to build modern applications, utilizing a microservices architecture to help you accelerate your MVP and get it ready to scale unencumbered. Dedicated Solution Architects are available to answer your questions after the session.
