Discuss how companies are leapfrogging over complex infrastructure technology to speed productivity - and how to get started


Columbus 6-20-19


Join us and other IT leaders in your area, as AWS and Flux7 explore how Serverless technology is emerging and shaping the Enterprise IT Landscape. In this workshop, IT leaders will learn what business problems are solved by Serverless, where it fits within the Agile and DevOps movements, and how AWS and Flux7 are leading the innovation to help companies get a jumpstart.


We'll kick off the morning session with an overview of Serverless Technologies on AWS, and how companies like Flux7 are helping businesses to get started while coaching internal teams to develop skills while they build the system.

After lunch, we will feature tangible demonstrations that show the results of running applications using AWS Serverless technologies and will provide an open forum to ask questions and discuss your current business cases with the presenters. Attendees will be provided with AWS credits and source code to take back to their teams and test in their own environments.


Who should attend? 

This workshop has been developed for Senior IT Leaders, CIOs, CTOs, Application Development Leaders, IT and Operations Managers, and Cloud Team Members
