Hey Ottawa AWS Users!
Make sure to RSVP to our October AWS User Group Meetup - it's a good one! Gilberto Castillo from SignalFX presents "Lessons Learned from Monitoring Next-Gen Infrastructure." RSVP today!
Presentation Title: Lessons Learned from Monitoring Next-Gen Infrastructure
Presentation Summary: The ability of Amazon ECS to dynamically manage container orchestration drastically simplifies the deployment, scaling, and operation of containerized applications. While this is true for stateless applications, it gets quickly complex for stateful applications (e.g. databases). This is a reprise of Ram Jothikumar's talk to review several challenges associated with orchestrating stateful applications and databases, discuss various methods for handling state in a containerized stack and their trade-offs, and share lessons learned as SignalFx moved its own stateful services to orchestrated containers.
Presenter Bio: Gilberto Castillo is a solutions engineer working on monitoring, analytics and real-time challenges that affect visibility in the Cloud. Gilberto has more than twenty years of experience in the Information Technology field in a wide range of roles including technical support manager, workflow automation specialist, integration developer, infrastructure hardware planner, systems management consultant, data center automation expert, training and enablement, and Cloud management.

Let's talk about Artificial Intelligence at Amazon! We have Andy Buist, Solution Architect at TriNimbus Technologies, talking about AWS DeepLens: A New Way to Learn Machine Learning! RSVP TODAY! More details below!
*Presentation Location:* Access to Klipfolio is on the 3rd floor of the World Exchange Plaza above the food court. Accessible by stairs, elevator and escalator. Due to the building's security policy, we request participants to wait in the food court or public area of the building if anyone arrives before 5:45.
AWS DeepLens: A New Way to Learn Machine Learning
AWS DeepLens is not a video camera...it's the world's first deep learning enabled developer kit. AWS DeepLens helps put deep learning in the hands of developers, literally, with a fully programmable video camera, tutorials, code, and pre-trained models designed to expand deep learning skills.
In this presentation, we will cover Machine Learning overview, DeepLens overview, building & training models in SageMaker, and extending a project. We will discuss exciting projects you can do with a DeepLens, including object detection, face detection, animal distinction and audience response tracking with AWS. Even more exciting, we'll talk about how you can build custom deep learning models in the cloud using Amazon SageMaker.

*Presentation Title:* Real-time Reactive Amazon EC2 Automation With Mgmtconfig
*Presentation Summary:* This presentation will focus on the AWS:EC2 resource in mgmt. Attendees will learn how mgmt implements reactive, distributed real-time management with real-world examples taken from the AWS:EC2 resource. By tracing the development process, we will explore the design and implementation of the resource, and some challenges encountered along the way. The audience will leave with a sense of how mgmt’s resources work, and how to go about implementing their own. There will also be several live demos, showing how to the finished resource works, and how it reacts to changes in the environment.

Hey Ottawa AWS Users! We have 2 AWESOME presentations for our April meetup at Rebel.com! Come eat some pizza and chat with us!
6:00pm: Refreshments & Snacks
6:25pm: Presentation 1 & 2
Presentation Title: Event based file processing using AWS Lambda, SQS, ECS, S3, Cloudwatch and manage AWS resources using Terraform.
S3 lets you upload and download files into the bucket. In real life sometimes you want to process files as long as your client uploads files into your bucket. Your client can upload files in your buckets say 3/4 times in a day... So in this case it can be done by a schedule job that will monitor your bucket and process the files if there are any files in the bucket. AWS provides various services to properly architect this use case by instead of scheduling, you use an event based model. In this live demo we will use S3, Lambda, SQS, ECR with a mini docker app
Foysal Iqbal is the senior developer/ scrum master at Espial. Espial make software for TV operators. Foysal has around nine years of programming experience. Interested technologies now a days are Docker, Cloud, Haskell.
Presentation Title: AWS Networking Overview

Using AWS Athena to analyze structured data stored in S3 (including ELB logs)
AWS Athena let’s you use SQL to query large amounts of data stored in S3 in an incredibly cost-effective, simple manner. In this presentation/demo, we’ll use 2 real world examples to show how powerful Athena can be in easily querying data sets in S3. One example will query archived logs from a log collection service called Papertrail while another will show data mining AWS ELB/ALB logs for information.
