1. Deploy Lambda Based Web Apps In Seconds with .architect: Brian LeRoux, Begin (
Amazon Web Services unlocks web scale infrastructure and recent advances towards "serverless" technology enables developers to achieve scale focusing solely on their application domain logic without concern for underlying servers and instances. However, building apps with AWS Lambda, Simple Notification Service and DynamoDB can be extremely complex to setup and deploy. Join us for an introductory talk about recently open sourced which enables provisioning and deploying apps with unprecedented speed and clarity.

2. Lightning Talks

We have one JavaScript-centric lightning talk lined up and are looking for 1-2 more. Get in touch if you're up for it! Talks will be 5-10 minutes long.

- Keith Horwood: An introduction to FaaSlang (and Function Composition with StdLib)

- Vikram Tiwari: Asynclog, the fast logging framework for Node 3. Drinks

Join us for drinks after the event at the Irish Heather, located at 210 Carrall Street.
