Learning serverless in 60 min

The Skiff

Speaker: Ben Smith, Senior Developer Advocate @ AWS. Sponsored by AWS With serverless backends, front-end developers can build confidently in the cloud from prototype to production without managing infrastructure. In this session you will learn about tooling, frameworks, and architectural patterns focused on building a web application from front to back. Along the way we will discuss best practices to help you get a started on developing without needing to manage servers. I will demo the solutions, and show how you can integrate these common web app features with minimal code. If you are a front-end developer wondering how serverless can help you, this session is for you! Lightning talk Jake Howard will be doing a brief talk on "Wireguard - The Modern VPN Technology"

Async Spring Social: Postmark Party @ Pier Pressure escape rooms

Pier Pressure Escape Rooms


**Async Spring social at Brighton's best escape rooms!** The generous folks at Postmark are sponsoring Async for another social event. Postmark offers lightning-fast transactional email delivery for applications, and as well as sponsoring our Spring Social, they are offering three months of free service to Async members. Visit: https://postmarkapp.com/async Discount code: ASYNC For the Async Spring social, we've decided this time we'd like to try our hand at an escape room. We have space for 15 lucky Async-ers to join us at Pier Pressure on Thurs 19 March 2020, to try and outwit the puzzle masters and with a combination of teamwork, dexterity and lateral thinking. We will form two teams to take on two of the best escape rooms in the UK, "Raver Quest" and "Loot the Lanes". https://pierpressure.co.uk/escaperooms/loot-the-lanes/ https://pierpressure.co.uk/escaperooms/raver-quest/ Spaces are limited to 15 and to cover the costs we need to ask each attendee to contribute £8. We will contact you after sign-up with details on how to pay. If you can't make it to the escape rooms, but would like to join us afterwards for a drink, we will meet at the Windmill pub around 20:30, which is two minutes walk away from pier-pressure. https://www.thewindmillpub.co.uk/ Spaces are limited so please only sign up if you are able to make the date and you are willing to pay £8 towards the cost of the event.
