Introduction to AWS for Developers and Architects

Introduction to AWS for Developers and Architects

Session Summary

With the announcement of Amazon Web Services (AWS) opening a data centre here in Canada, we’re about to see a huge demand for cloud architects and developers in the Maritimes.

While there is a general understanding of the benefits of the cloud, most are just starting to understand how powerful it really is.

I will review the different AWS services, and present options for cloud-based infrastructure, including questions around staying cloud-agnostic vs. leveraging AWS, as well as the cost implications of different architectures.

Bio

Chris Fullerton wrote his first computer program in 1975, and at one point had JCPenney.com‘s online store running on his desktop machine. He is one of the few people alive who can say he once sold more books online than Amazon, back when he was working at Netscape when that was still a thing and Mozilla was a mascot.

Chris has been working with the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform since joining Blue Spurs in 2012. Chris now holds 3 of the 5 available AWS certifications, including the Professional Solutions Architect designation. He still uses perl scripts he wrote so long ago that they are older than many Blue Spurs employees.
