Toronto Serverless, Cloud Native, Docker, DevOps & Ruby communities are lucky to have a special guest Tung Nguyen visiting us! Tung is a presenter at AWS Global Summits 2018, founder of, organizer for “San Francisco DevOps for Startups” meetups, and one of the most well-rounded IT professionals I've had the pleasure to meet. He went

1. from being a Keynote speaker at DockerCon 2014
2. through being AWS Container Hero teaching ECS and Fargate,
3. to creating Serverless Ruby framework for AWS

The technologies vary, but the common theme is “Tung makes what was complex simple” :)

Our guest will be answering your questions the about the future of Cloud Native Computing, Containers, FaaS & BaaS, AWS Summits 2018, and will show us how to create Serverless applications with Ruby using a tool called Jets. We'll learn a bit about how AWS Lambda works under the hood – to see how Ruby Support was added to AWS with essentially native performance.

Just take a peek at Tung's numerous video tutorials to get inspired which questions from your own work, you should bring to this meetup:
