This time we have not one but two great speakers lined up!
Richard Harvey (Lead Project Engineer, Channel 4)
"AWS war stories at Channel 4"
Ric is heavily involved in Channel 4’s utilisation of public and private clouds. A large part of his role is coordinating with design agencies to help deliver solutions and deploy sites after fully pentesting/load testing and bug fixing the sites. His team uses an in house written system that interfaces with the AWS API to automate the deploys and create repeatable systems. He is also involved in the current migration of other Channel 4 services into AWS as a consolidation plan, plus the migration of their custom scripts over to CloudFormation and Puppet.
Ric is responsible for a team of engineers and coordinating workflow and project priorities. Other areas of responsibilities lie within project acceptance, and security reviews. Ric will be sharing some AWS “war stories” from his time at Channel 4 with the group.
Ryan Shuttleworth (Technical Evangelist, AWS)
"AWS Re:Invent round-up"
We're very happy to welcome back Ryan Shuttleworth. Ryan is a Technical Evangelist at Amazon Web Services. Ryan will be giving a round-up of AWS re: Invent, Amazon Web Services' first global conference from November in Las Vegas, and giving an overview of all the highlights. As always, feel free to come armed with questions!
Not to be missed!
