Hands on AWS :: CloudFormation

After Work Workshop


LEVEL: Intermediate

Powerful tools are nothing without a good way to control them. On AWS you could literally spin up hundreds of servers, but would you do that manually? I bet you are a little bit like me and don't like to do repetitive boring tasks so much. If this is the case, enjoy a slice of pizza and follow me down the White Rabbit hole while we discover together CloudFormation, AWS' platform-as-code tool that allows describing a complex system with a not-so-terribly-complicated code. Tonight we will try to run a Docker project in a high availability ECS cluster which is given access to a secure database that is (almost) impossible to access - hence violate - from the public Internet. Cool stuff uh? Tonight's plan is an ambitious one. The end goal is to see together what is possible to achieve with AWS and why is worth investing time learning it. We will discuss a high-level service architecture and learn the basics of CloudFormation templating (plus few tricks I've learned the hard way). Anyway, this is not a course and you need only a basic experience with Linux, command line tools and bash to fully understand what we will try to achieve.

Speaker: Marco Pegoraro

Hi, I'm Marco. I am Italian and like to learn new stuff. My experience with AWS has begun one year ago, helping Sony to bring their new developer portal to life. I had a great mentor who introduced me to the struggles of Cloud Architecture and high availability. Today I run a couple of AWS projects for big and small customers as well for my startup where we use the Cloud to run a big data application. I'm deep into the learning process and I'm happy with what I can do so far.
