- Tech Talks @ FWI - Our Journey to Serverless
For many years, modern web architecture has centered on deploying applications through always-on compute resources, broad sets of microservices, and infrastructure that relied on fairly continuous maintenance. In 2014, Amazon introduced AWS Lambda (a severless computing platform that prioritizes feature development over infrastructure management) and changed the web application paradigm forever. Join Damir Durmo, Chris Soto, and Ricardo Lopez, senior members of FWI’s Software team, as they detail the company’s journey to serverless, tell the story of how the company rapidly expanded its modern cloud with AWS Lambda, and provide key insights into common challenges and pitfalls with serverless computing.
- Building Enterprise-grade IoT with AWS
IoT (Internet of Things) is one of the most common, most utilized buzzwords into today’s tech landscape. Coupled with this excitement is a legion of questions: is this concept ready for the enterprise? How can it be done securely? How well does it scale (and who is responsible for scaling it appropriately)? At this event, FWI Software Architect Jason Ripley and other members of the Development team will discuss AWS IoT, Amazon’s managed cloud platform for deploying, provisioning, maintaining, and troubleshooting large quantities of IoT devices spread throughout the world. The team will also share how FWI is utilizing this framework to create the next generation of its award-winning visual communications platform. We’ll also have food, drink, and time to network! Additional details to come.
