- Cloud DevXChange — LocalStack x WinglangLink visible for attendees
Join us for an exciting virtual community event organised by LocalStack and Winglang, to learn more about modern trends in cloud-native development & testing, unified programming model to combine infrastructure and application code, and modern developer toolings for a better dev&test experience.
The community event will host interactive talks centred around how developers can embrace new methodologies to build, test and deploy modern cloud & serverless applications while embracing business agility and modern DevOps practises.
Hop in to hear from LocalStack and Winglang leaders, on how you can use tools and techniques to unleash your productivity on cloud while going above and beyond to deliver quality software, faster and more securely.
Talk #1 — The Wing Programming Language
In this talk Elad will build a fully working cloud application using Winglang, a new programming language designed for the cloud. Winglang unifies infrastructure and application code into a single programming model and shipped with a local cloud simulator and the ability to compile your cloud application to multiple cloud providers. Elad will discuss some of the fundamental ideas behind this language, chat about the roadmap and cloud development philosophy.
After an amazing journey to create the AWS CDK, CDK8s, JSII and Projen, Elad has recently left the comforts of AWS to start a new company called Wing Cloud. Wing’s mission is to democratise the cloud by reimagining cloud development from the ground up (pun intended of course). Elad’s talks are usually heavy on the live-coding, because that’s basically the only thing he really knows how to do.
Talk #2 — LocalStack: Lightning-fast feedback loops for developing cloud apps & infrastructure
In this talk, Waldemar will provide a hands-on introduction to LocalStack - the leading platform that allows you to develop and test cloud & serverless applications entirely on your local machine, without ever having to connect to the real cloud! The session covers interactive live coding to showcase common scenarios and use cases, different settings for local debugging of Lambdas and containerized apps (e.g., ECS/EKS), as well as some advanced new features that can radically improve productivity and team collaboration patterns.
Waldemar is co-founder and CTO of LocalStack, where he and his team are building the world-leading platform for local cloud development! Prior to founding LocalStack, Waldemar has held several engineering and management roles at startups as well as large international companies, including Atlassian, IBM, and Zurich Insurance.
Talk #3 — LocalStack x Wing: Deploying Winglang apps on local cloud sandboxes
Dive deep into the new era of cloud development, where LocalStack's lightning-speed local emulation meets the unified programming elegance of Winglang! We're showcasing how to run Winglang applications, a language that blends infrastructure with runtime code, on LocalStack's sandboxed environment.
Sebastian Korfmann is the Winglang Trailblazer and an AWS DevTools Hero. Formerly with HashiCorp, he's notably the creator of CDK for Terraform.
LocalStack is the company behind the leading AWS emulator that provides over 90 local high-fidelity services for cloud and serverless development and testing while perfectly adapting to your growing system of integrations with many available third-party plugins. LocalStack helps you validate infrastructure, optimize pipelines, leverage extensive integrations, and confidently deploy to AWS.
Winglang is a new open-source programming language designed for the cloud. It combines infrastructure and runtime code, enabling developers to maintain their creative flow. Winglang empowers developers to build distributed systems that leverage cloud services as first-class citizens, all within a safe and unified programming model. Wing programs can be executed locally using a fully-functional simulator, or can be deployed to any cloud provider.
