Hello to all.

We are happy to host Aleksandar Simovic(https://twitter.com/simalexan) in Athens for our next Cloud Strategy & Architecture Meetup!

Aleksandar Simovic will join us in Athens. He is going to speak about Serverless, Cloud Computing, AWS ( & more buzzwords!).

Aleksandar is an experienced senior software consultant and engineer, author of the book [Serverless Applications with Node.js](https://www.manning.com/books/serverless-applications-with-nodejs …) and an [AWS Serverless Hero](https://aws.amazon.com/developer/community/heroes/aleksandar-simovic/ …). He has worked in a variety of industries ranging from insurance companies, property management companies to innovative biotech startups.

His passion is serverless architectures, business impacts of serverless, conversational programming, software craftsmanship and business strategy.
One of the authors of Claudia.js and Claudia Bot Builder, Scotty.js, contributor to AWS SAM, AWS Lambda Builders and many other open source libraries.
Has published almost 30 free and open source serverless components on the AWS Serverless Application Repository.

The plan:

1. Building production-ready applications faster with serverless ---
There are many discussions on how serverless is great and what are its advantages, but those could be all summed in that its main focus is to help us deliver applications better and faster. Building software that runs, satisfies requirements, is stable and scalable does indeed sound like a Disney fairytale, but it is our everyday job as architects, engineers and even managers. Serverless makes that job a lot easier and this talk's goal is to show how does it do that, how to build applications that are able to withstand heavy loads from day one, how to architecture them, while delivering more features faster.

Aleksandar will present for about 30mins and a workshop will follow. It will be in English, highly engaging and we believe, very informative for Serverless developers.

2. Pizzas and beers in the end. A kind offer from the Orfium team (https://orfium.tech/).
