Carbon Five's monthly talk series, featuring speakers form varied backgrounds, talking about various topics.

Tonight's talks will be centered around writing and running services on Docker ( and Amazon Web Service's Lamda (

First we'll have Samuel Chow (, Head of Mobile at Farmers Insurance, give an Intro to Docker:

Docker has become one of the hottest technologies in the industry. But what is Docker? Why do developers love it and why might you want to use it? We will cover how it works and introduce the Docker terminology and toolset.

Then Grindr's Principal Applications Engineer Tom Bray ( walks us through Going Serverless with AWS Lambda:

Microservices got you down? Come learn how to implement Serverless architectures with AWS Lambda and API Gateway from someone who has done it in the real world. Get a glimpse of life beyond the operational overhead that Microservices require and discover the benefits of Serverless. Decrease time to market, reduce operational cost, and let AWS Lambda handle scaling for you automatically while you only pay for the compute you use.

We will provide pizza and drinks (beer and non-alcoholic drinks), wi-fi, cool vibes and killer talks.

Doors open at 6pm. Talks begin at 7pm, and last approximately an hour including Q&A. The rest of the evening, until we shut down at 9pm, is free time. We also have an accompanying Slack to discuss during and around the event; contact a group admin to get an invite.
