Serverless Observability with Thundra - Serkan Özal
It was October 2017 and the OpsGenie engineering team was frustrated. As they migrated their application into AWS Lambda, they were guessing at how to solve performance problems or optimize their resource consumption. Nothing existed for what they needed - a full context solution that presented all observability data in a single, aggregated view and allowed them to precisely pinpoint problem areas.

One year later, in October 2018, their internal engineering project had grown into a sophisticated observability platform. At that time, OpsGenie spun Thundra out as its own independent company. And now, Thundra offers serverless observability and monitoring to the greater community, helping ease adoption of serverless architectures everywhere.

We are delighted to welcome Serkan Özal, the founder and CEO of, to tell us more. This is also our first ever remote talk

Serverless Performance Testing - Ed Gale
A live demo (let's hope the demo gods are kind) showing the use of serverless artillery for instant, cheap, and easy performance testing at scale

AWS Quiz Session
After the success of the last session in Cardiff, we are going to bring the AWS quiz format to Swansea
