Cloud Technology for Non-Techies

We’ve got a little intro (15 min) on what cloud is, and we’ll answer all your questions. Where’s the cloud? Why/how is the cloud invented? How does it work today? Is it secure? Is it expensive? Or cheap? Is it hard to learn? Which clients can benefit from cloud? What’s beyond the cloud? And all other questions you would like to ask the experts. For het experts it’s a challenge as well, to answer these questions without diving into the technical details. So please join if you want to learn about cloud and improve your explanation skills!

AWS Architecting (rerun)

During this talk I’ll use digital designs and whiteboard designs to explain the AWS well-architected framework, Cloud Adoption Framework and general AWS Best Practices. We’ll start with some easy setups for people who haven’t done much or anything with AWS, but will quickly move to more comprehensive architectures for the more experienced people.
