"No server is easier to manage than no server” - Werner Vogels
Serverless Auckland is all about computing and architectures that allow you to NOT think about servers and the usually required plumbing to build scalable secure applications and systems.
Servers are still involved but you don't have to deal anymore with capacity, scaling, fault tolerance, OS updates, etc. Instead, developers can focus on business logic and features that provide value... These architectures are not new and build on work done in many areas but a growing number of businesses are now starting to build completely serverless platforms.
This group is for people who are interested in learning more about this topic and want to discuss various technologies that enable serverless computing. We will be looking at current and future use cases and explore how businesses can take advantage of this model.
Gerard Sans visiting Auckland and has a jam packed talk & walk through to take us through creating a powerful modern web app using the latest offerings from AWS:
Adding Machine Learning to your App only takes few minutes. In this talk we are going to build a fully featured translation App from scratch including: translations between 25 languages, text to speech, speech to text and language detection. We will explore each of these apis, supported languages, voices and more! We will try different scenarios to show what is possible today thanks to AWS Amplify CLI and the new predictions that integrates seamlessly Amazon Translate, Amazon Polly, Amazon Transcribe and Amazon Comprehend.
