Java, AWS, Containers...what more could you want?! Jason Poley will be discussing how to use Java and AWS together: a journey toward serverless options in the cloud. This will be an introduction and overview as well as tips and tricks around using Serverless in the Cloud. He will provide a look into using Fargate and Lambda with Java, in addition to some of the new features of AWS. Beginner/Intermediate level, but everyone can learn and/or contribute to discussion.

Haven't heard much about Serverless or Fargate? Check out the definitions below!

"Serverless is the native architecture of the cloud that enables you to shift more of your operational responsibilities to AWS, increasing your agility and innovation. Serverless allows you to build and run applications and services without thinking about servers. It eliminates infrastructure management tasks such as server or cluster provisioning, patching, operating system maintenance, and capacity provisioning. You can build them for nearly any type of application or backend service, and everything required to run and scale your application with high availability is handled for you."

"AWS Fargate is a compute engine for Amazon ECS that allows you to run containers without having to manage servers or clusters. With AWS Fargate, you no longer have to provision, configure, and scale clusters of virtual machines to run containers. This removes the need to choose server types, decide when to scale your clusters, or optimize cluster packing. AWS Fargate removes the need for you to interact with or think about servers or clusters. Fargate lets you focus on designing and building your applications instead of managing the infrastructure that runs them."
