19:00-19:20 - How to Build your First Serverless (Progressive) Web Application in 10 Minutes
- Avishay Bar, Cloud & DevOps Engineer at CyberArk
Serverless computing provides us with benefits such as reduced operational costs and development time. It allows us to focus on our code to provide business value to the users without worrying about building and maintaining servers. In this session, I'll explain and demonstrate how you can utilize AWS Amplify to build serverless applications and integrate AWS services within our app with a few lines of code.

19:20-19:40 - Don’t Run with Scissors: Serverless Security Survival Guide
- Tsion Gonen, CEO and Co-Founder of Protego Labs
Moving to serverless makes some things better and some things worse, but pretty much nothing stays the same. The threats to your serverless apps are consistent in many ways, but they may not look and act the same way. While serverless reduces some of the top security threats, vulnerabilities within the application layer remain. Additionally, some security threats become even worse and entirely new challenges arise.

19:40-20:00 - Orchestration of Serverless Workers
- Nikolay Grishchenko, CTO of Better Impression
One of the hardest challenges while using FaaS-based workers is orchestration: Chunk business jobs to thousands (or millions) of tasks for workers, How many workers shall we invoke at a specific moment? Track the status of each invocation, Retry / alert failed invocations, Monitor collateral damage and side-effects (DB, queues, etc). In this talk, we are going to discover even more challenges and discuss some ways to solve them in the AWS cloud.

20:00-20:30 - more food and drinks!
