Serverless stories in a data center, Amazon Web Services meetup 2019

Serverless stories in a data center, Amazon Web Services meetup 2019

We had an amazing turn-up on 20 February 2019 for our first time hosting the Amazon Web Services user group meetup here in the Iron Mountain AMS-1 datacenter, in the heart of the Waarderpolder of Haarlem.

What is Serverless?

Serverless is a cloud-computing execution model where the cloud provider (in this case, Amazon Web Services Lambda) runs the server, which enables developers to build and run almost any applications and other backend services without worrying about infrastructure management tasks, such as system maintenance or capacity provisioning. Basically, it simplifies the process of deploying code into production, as it handles directly for the developers everything that is required for their applications to run smoothly and be scalable at wish. 

Serverless code can be used in conjunction with code deployed in traditional styles, or applications can be written to be purely serverless and use no provisioned servers at all.

Thank you

We’d like to thank all of those who showed up to the meetup, Haarlem.Tech regulars and new comers, we hope you had an interesting and fun evening!

Thank you also to our community member Tomoharu Ito, talented Alexa Skill builder, Alexa champion and active member of the AWS user group Netherlands, for organizing three great talks.

Finally, we extend our gratitude to the speakers who came to share their knowledge and expertise of Serverless technology with us: Danilo Poccia, who flew all the way from London to be at the meetup, and Michael Oshita and Takahiro Horike, who took time off their precious sleep to talk to us live from Japan in the middle of the night.

If you wish to reminisce on all that you’ve learnt about Serverless framework and step functions during the meetup, you can access and dowload Danilo’s presentation through this link

Stay tuned to Haarlem.Tech’s website and social media for more great tech events.

Next up, our second edition of the Amazon Alexa meetups. Bring on April!

GDPR will change data protection – here’s what you need to know

General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, will overhaul how businesses process and handle data. need-to-know GDPR guide explains what the changes mean for you.

In less than a year, Europe’s data protection rules will undergo their biggest changes in two decades. Since they were created in the 90s, the amount of digital information we create, capture, and store has vastly increased. Simply put, the old regime was no longer fit for purpose.

The solution is the mutually agreed European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will come into force on May 25 2018. It will change how businesses and public sector organisations can handle the information of customers.
