Things AWS doesn't want you to automate (and how to automate them)

Almost any AWS service can be fully controlled using the AWS API, for this we strongly recommend the use of boto3 (Python SDK). The problem is, that there exist some administrative tasks for which there is no public API, and there exist some AWS tasks that still require the AWS Account Root User. For example when creating a new account in an AWS Organization, there are some things that you are unable to do using the documented APIs. In this talk I’ll show how you can use Coto for these tasks, and a little background because programming with AWS SDKs is interesting.

Monitoring Golden Signals with Istio on GKE

When you run a system in production, you need to be aware of what is happening. Metrics, logs and traces can help with that. There is a very popular book about Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) that proposes to focus on the four golden signals: Latency, Traffic, Errors, Saturation. In this lab we will explore how we can monitor these signals out of the box with Istio on Google Kubernetes Engine.

AWS re:Invent Recap

During the week of AWS re:Invent there were over 100 announcements made. In this power hour, I’m on a mission to highlight as many as possible.

rerun Simple Architectures for Complex Systems, or how to create the most simple architecture for any system

What is the most important system quality? Is it Performance? Availability? Security? Correctness? No. The most important system quality is complexity. Complexity is king, as it governs all other system qualities. But how do we control system complexity? In this talk, I will present the golden rule which will help you to create the simplest design for any system. Active exercises included.

knative - a cloud agnostic framework for serverless applications

Google does it again! After k8s, it now delivered knative which allows you to build and deploy serverless applications without the heavy vendor lock-in of Lambda. In this workshop we want to explore how good it is.

Weeronline

Since I didn’t had the time to properly explain my solution to the Weeronline developers, I’ve created this Knowledge exchange session for them about their Google Cloud Dataflow/Scala implementation.

Time window is provisional and may be postponed till after diner.

Binx Managed Cloud

A talk about what the Binx Managed Cloud proposition looks like, the business opportunities it offers, how it differs from classical consultancy, and what the overlaps are.

GCP - Cloud Architect Study

Since I’ve completed the Coursera Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Specialisation (https://www.coursera.org/specializations/gcp-architecture), i’m ready for the next step in my ‘Get GCP certified’ study plan.

During this session we can deconstruct customer cases, work on practice exams and share study resources.

Serverless backends in 60 minutes with AWS and SBT-SAM

In a 60 minute live coding session, create a AWS Serverless backend service. We will create a backend Scala and SBT-SAM leveraging AWS Api Gateway, AWS DynamoDB, AWS Cognito for security. We will create a Scala console application communicates with the backend service using security tokens from AWS Cognito.
