Some refer to him as AWS Hero, others call him the G.O.A.T. We are very excited to have him back on stage! Please welcome one of our most anticipated speakers of the year: 🐈 :cat2: Yan Cui ️ About his Tech-talk: Everyone talks about Serverless architectures and a lot of people share their architectures. But barely anyone talks about HOW they arrived at their architecture and all the other possible ways they could have solved the problem and why their chosen approach is the best in their context. Those are the thought processes that everyone has to go through, and a muscle that we all need to exercise. There are many ways to solve a given problem using AWS services. And knowing when to use which service has become one of the most valuable skills for software engineers. In this session, 🐈 Yan Cui would present a number of novel problems with different requirements and share his approach to reasoning about and evaluating solutions and picking the right AWS service for the job.
