- Migrating to AWS - what’s involved. Presentation by Attaullah Malik
Description: Migrating your existing applications and IT infrastructure to AWS Cloud presents an opportunity to transform product development, infrastructure management and the way a company conducts business. It can help a business achieve many cost optimizations in the form of hosting, procurement and talent management. In this session, we will dive into the Cloud Adaption Framework and 6 R’s of application migration strategies and how to select applications to migrate. We will discuss how to build momentum and team confidence by delivering quick wins. We will also show you very high level on AWS console how to create an AWS Landing zone to ensure a secure, performant, highly available, and cost-efficient AWS environment. We will briefly go over the AWS tools available for server and database migration. Bio: Malik has 15+ years of experience managing public/private cloud, data center, networking, database development and administration, hardware infrastructure management, and software development. As Sr. Director of Infrastructure Engineering at Watermark, Malik manages geographically dispersed DevOps and TechOps teams and data centers, hybrid cloud, provides technology strategy and manages disaster recovery planning. Malik earned a B.S. in Computer Science from Brooklyn College-CUNY and an MBA from Columbia Business School.

- AWS-lambda & Cassandra: Power your scalable app w/out managing a single server.
Managed service and serverless architecture are very attractive solutions for new tech companies and large established enterprise for good reasons: It reduces the time to market; it abstracts away the complexity of managing servers, and lower the total cost of ownership. One of the key players in serverless architecture is AWS with its aws-lambda offering: a simple way to execute a small portion of stateless code, on demand, without the need to provision any servers. AWS lambda are often combined with AWS api gateway to provide the front end and execution layer of a REST api. Cassandra is one of the most popular solutions for back-end storage of large-scale applications. It's always on, scalable, and provides very low latency. This talk will walk you through a POC that combines AWS lambda, API Gateway, and Instaclustr Cassandra managed service, to power a simple REST api. We will cover the technical challenges, the tips learned along the way, and discuss the pros and cons of this approach. Bio: Ben is responsible for working closely with his engineering team and customers to build highly available, scalable applications.Instaclustr is the only multi-cloud, self service Cassandra as a Service (CaaS) provider in the world. Only thing -- since this is JMPC's building we need to be able to securely track this information and who is in the building. They have created an EventBrite page where attendees need to RSVP so they can get a badge to get into the facility. Here is a link to that page.

- Duct – IFTTT for Developers + Clojure nyc - Meetup Event
Duct can be thought of as an IFTTT for developers. It provides in-browser solution to write and wire up Serverless functions with a graph UI that shows, both, the dependencies return values of its functions. Developers can publish and fork flows or individual functions to a community function library. This allows to build and deploy complex behaviors fast. Duct is in alpha, used for home automation, price tracking and for smart notifications (e.g. hiking reminders based on weather or location). After a quick overview of the app, we'll write, deploy and publish a flow using Duct. I'll have one prepared but if you got ideas checking out Duct, we can implement yours instead.
