Overview

The industry is blurring the lines between Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). Companies today are challenged with resource constraints in IT, resulting in long delivery cycles. How can a company deploy efficiently and reliably with minimal IT oversight while maintaining flexibility in application delivery options?

In this talk, we will walk through the lifecycle of a microservices-based solution architected within the AWS ecosystem. We will discuss an emerging industry approach that uses a combination of PaaS with containers. We will also demonstrate a model for delivering an application on a PaaS platform in AWS.

This is a 101-level presentation. Participants will not need to understand AWS, but some understanding of the software development lifecycle and benefits of microservices will help.

Boxed lunches will be provided.
