What we're about

This is the Amazon Web Services user group for Manchester, England.

Anyone and everyone with an interest in the cloud is welcome.

Whilst independent from Amazon, we frequently feature talks by AWS staff as well as fellow AWS users who share their experience and expertise with the group.

We're keen to hear from members what topics they'd like to cover in meetings. There's usually a free bar, always good speakers, and the opportunity to network with like-minded people.

Do you have an AWS or cloud related story, a recent major project to share your experience of, special expertise in the field or even just some tips to share? If so, we'd love to have you as a speaker at one of our future meetups!

Building event driven, serverless applications on AWS (James Eastham, AWS)
Teams building micro-service architecture often find integration with other applications and external services can make their workloads more monolithic and tightly coupled. Event-driven serverless architectures enable your applications to seamlessly scale to burst so they can handle virtually any demand with minimal operational overhead.

In this session you will learn architecture patterns and best practices for composing end-to-end architectures with queues, publish/subscribe topics, event buses, and front-end APIs paired with AWS Lambda-based serverless event processing.

James Eastham is a Cloud Infrastructure Architect at Amazon Web Services. He is passionate about building modern, scalable and resilient applications using event driven architectures and serverless technologies.
