## Bob Gregory (Cazoo) - Reactive Serverless Microservices with Eventbridge.
Serverless is the new hotness, and organisations are moving more complex workloads to cloud-native ephemeral platforms. As deployed systems get more complex, how do we keep things maintainable over time, and avoid a tangled web of dependencies? DDD practitioners have long advocated for asynchronous message passing as a means of decoupling services. Find out how EventBridge supports us in building complex applications with simple building blocks, and why it's the biggest thing in serverless since Lambda.

## Fabrice Bernhard (Theodo) - Will Serverless kill Kanban?
On one hand coding is primarily creative, so how can it be reduced to a structured process. Dan North says "everything before production has high variance". On the other hand, experience shows that very structured approaches like scrum and kanban have brought huge productivity improvements, therefore showing that part of coding is predictable and not such high variance...
In this talk I want to introduce you to the simple A B C model first introduced by Michael Ballé and how it solves the conundrum between creativity and predictability. But this model also opens up a very interesting conversation on predictability in a software world. Will predictable tasks end up automated... and will kanban still exist in a serverless world where everything predictable has been productised?
