AWS Women in Tech Summer Event – New York

August 30, 2016 @ 3:00 am - 7:00 pm

Join us at the Roxy Hotel to learn about AWS and get up to speed on two new trends in cloud computing (containers & serverless architectures), all while discussing some unique challenges women encounter as they work to grow their careers as developers or engineers.

3PM-4PM Introduction to Amazon Web Services. If you’re new to AWS you’ll want to join this session where we discuss the advantages of cloud computing and provide a high-level overview of AWS products, services, and common solutions.  We’ll also outline the hands-on labs, trainings, and other resources available to help you take the next step and gain a deeper understanding of how programmers can use AWS.

Speaker: Danielle Greshock, Manager, AWS Solutions Architecture

4PM-5PM Getting Started with Serverless Architectures. Serverless architectures let you build and deploy applications and services with infrastructure resources that require zero administration. In the past, you had to provision and scale servers to run your application code, install and operate distributed databases, and build and run custom software to handle API requests. Now, AWS provides a stack of scalable, fully-managed services that eliminates these operational complexities. In this session, you will learn about the benefits of serverless architectures and the basics of the serverless stack AWS provides.

Speaker: Radhika Ravirala, AWS Solutions Architect

5PM-6PM Getting Started with Docker on AWS. AWS is an elastic, secure, flexible, and developer-centric ecosystem that serves as an ideal platform for Docker deployments. AWS offers the scalable infrastructure, APIs, and SDKs that integrate tightly into a development lifecycle and accentuate the benefits of the lightweight and portable containers that Docker offers to its users. This session will familiarize you with the benefits of containers, introduce Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS), and demonstrate how to use Amazon ECS for your applications.

Speaker: Danielle Greshock, Manager, AWS Solutions Architecture

6PM-7:30PM Networking & Happy Hour. Stick around, make new friends, and enjoy food & drinks while discussing the breadth of opportunities which exist for tech professionals of all backgrounds. You can share your stories and get mentorship from female tech industry leaders.
