Eric JohnsonPrincipal Developer Advocate, AWS

Topic: The things I got wrong in Serverless Development

Abstract: Serverless technologies have changed the paradigm for building applications, plain and simple. However, many developers are still boxing serverless development within the limited confines of traditional, or dare I say, legacy development practices. If you are approaching serverless development this way, you are doing it wrong.
I have been developing serverless applications since the day it was announced. I have made every mistake in the book and paid for it in time and money. As a result, I was forced to evaluate and rethink my development philosophy. In this session, I talk through common pitfalls made by organizations getting started with serverless technologies and challenge you to think differently based on lessons I have learned along the way.

Eric Johnson is a Principal Developer Advocate for Serverless Applications at Amazon Web Services and is based in Northern Colorado. Eric is a fanatic about serverless and enjoys helping developers understand how serverless technologies introduces a major paradigm shift in how they approach building and running applications at massive scale with minimal administration overhead. Prior to this, Eric has worked as a developer, solutions architect and AWS Evangelist for an AWS partner company.



Yan CuiDeveloper Advocate, Lumigo

Topic: How we built a social network in 4 weeks with GraphQL and Serverless

Abstract: Serverless technologies drastically simplify the task of building modern, scalable APIs in the cloud, and GraphQL makes it easy for frontend teams to consume these APIs and to iterate quickly on your product idea. Together, they are a perfect combination for a product-focused, full-stack team to deliver customer values quickly. In this talk, see how we built a new social network mobile app in under 4 weeks using Lambda, AppSync, DynamoDB and Algolia, how we approached CI/CD, testing, authentication and lessons we learnt along the way.

Yan is an experienced engineer who has run production workload at scale in AWS for over 10 years. He has been an architect and principal engineer with a variety of industries ranging from banking, e-commerce, sports streaming to mobile gaming. He has worked extensively with AWS Lambda in production since 2015. Nowadays, he splits his time between advancing the state of serverless observability as a Developer Advocate at lumigo.io and helping companies around the world adopt serverless as an independent consultant.
Yan is also an AWS Serverless Hero and a regular speaker at user groups and conferences internationally. He is also the author of Production-Ready Serverless and co-author of Serverless Architectures on AWS, 2nd Edition, both by Manning. And he keeps an active blog at https://theburningmonk.com and hosts a weekly podcast at https://realworldserverless.com.



Jeremy DalyGM of Serverless Cloud, Serverless Inc.

Topic: Optimizing Serverless Development Workflows

Abstract: Over the last several years, serverless has gained a tremendous amount of traction among organizations large and small. From the scrappy, one-person startup, to the Fortune 500 enterprise, serverless has changed the way developers are building, deploying, and maintaining their applications. However, the rapid speed of that change has left most of them with a patchwork of tools, frameworks, and practices. At best, this is suboptimal, and at worst, it's completely unsustainable. In this talk, we'll look at how organizations are integrating serverless into their workflows and discuss where improvements can be made to tooling, CI/CD, and other processes to optimize developer productivity and dramatically reduce time-to-value (TTV) and total cost of ownership (TCO).

Jeremy is a passionate serverless advocate, an AWS Serverless Hero, and a senior technology leader with more than 20 years of experience building web and mobile applications. He is an active member of the serverless community, creating and contributing to open source serverless projects, and a regular speaker on conference stages around the world. Jeremy also writes extensively about serverless on his blog (jeremydaly.com), publishes Off-by-none, a weekly email newsletter that focuses on all things serverless (offbynone.io), and hosts the Serverless Chats Podcast (serverlesschats.com). He is currently the GM of Serverless Cloud at Serverless, Inc.



Jamie DuncanGCP & App Transformation, Google Cloud

Topic: What Happens to Ops when DevOps goes Serverless?

Abstract: In this talk we'll take a closer look at the evolving roles and responsibilities for Ops teams when they begin to bring serverless workloads into production. We'll analyze where the boundary lines are changing between Dev, Ops, and even Security and SRE teams. The audience will walk away with a better, and possibly new, understanding of the value of serverless workloads in modern application architectures.

Jamie Duncan is a recovering history major who has been working with and on Kubernetes for over 5 years. His primary focus is centered around the operational aspects of Kubernetes. In May 2018 he published OpenShift In Action by Manning Publications, and he's currently working on Google Anthos - Up and Running for Packt Publishing. Jamie focuses on the fundamental aspects and value of Kubenetes with customers, advocates, and technology fans on multiple continents.
That fundamental knowledge of how containers work helps people treat containers like the revolutionary technology they are, using them strategically to solve their challenges. When not knee deep in Kubernetes, Jamie’s a hobby woodworker and F1 racing fan.
