Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Analytics, Virtual and Augmented Reality and IoT

By Glenn Glore

Glenn Gore, Chief Architect for AWS, will talk about how Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Analytics, Virtual and Augmented Reality and IoT are changing the world around us. Never before have developers been in such an empowered position to spear-head and influence change and transformation in their respective organisations with the ease of access to these technologies. With so much change and innovation occurring at an increasing pace, Glenn will share how you can get started today and take your creative ideas and turn them into functioning services quickly and easily by leveraging the power of the cloud.


Atlassian's voyage with AWS Services

By Roaan Vos

Around 4 years ago, Atlassian started its voyage into developing solutions around and on top of AWS services. Various teams had been building their own stacks and processes, making the usual mess. A few proactive people in engineering services decided to clean some of it up by standardising on the 12 factor app and building the Micros platform to support it. This talk is about some of the challenges they faced and solved in getting 500+ developers building and deploying 700+ services to AWS, from managing the cloudformation stacks to automated database backups. The resulting solution enables developers to get a new service to staging in hours and into production inside a week, including all compliance and operational requirements.


Exploring Cloud Computing Services with Alexa

By Drew Firment

The future of cloud development will be driven by “functions as a service” that can’t be performed by server-based infrastructure or platform services. A simple and engaging way to explore cloud computing services and the new concept of event driven “serverless” functions is by developing a custom Alexa skill. It’s a fun and engaging entry point into the API-driven world of cloud computing and emerging serverless architecture patterns. Let’s walkthrough a quick demo of how to get started with building your own Alexa skill with serverless!




Glenn Glore

As the head of Architecture for Amazon Web Services, Glenn is responsible for managing a regional team, creating architectural best practices and working with customers on how they use the cloud for business transformation. In this role, Glenn oversees architectural best practices across APAC, regional input into the AWS roadmap and supporting customers that are making strategic investments with AWS. 



Roaan VosRoaan is a solution architect that engages with developers in Atlassian's Micros platform to help build solutions on AWS. Roaan is also responsible for identifying common patterns and challenges, and incorporates solutions back into the platform. Prior to Atlassian, Roaan worked for a large online gaming company, helping them transition to a microservice architecture and guiding developers in building highly available, high throughput services.



Drew FilmentDrew Firment is a managing partner at A Cloud Guru working with organizations that seek to accelerate cloud adoption through education. He has over twenty years of experience leading complex technology programs, enterprise platforms, and cultural transformations in a fast-paced agile environment.

As a technology director at Capital One, Drew worked across the flow of a large-scale enterprise adoption of AWS migrating early adopters into production. He recognized that cloud education was the greatest barrier to sustaining the transition at scale.

To enable a scalable and sustainable transition to AWS, Drew founded a cloud engineering college to accelerate an enterprise-wide talent transformation. As the Dean of Cloud Computing, he was awarded a patent for measuring cloud adoption and pioneered the intersection of strategy, governance, engineering, agile, and cloud education. Today, a full 2 percent of all AWS certified developers in the US work at Capital One.

Drew has earned all three of the AWS associate-level certifications, and is also recognized by Amazon as an Alexa Champion. He is recognized for his to efforts to build learning communities, his passion to improve diversity and inclusion in the technology industry, and as the editor of A Cloud Guru's community-sourced publication on cloud computing.
