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 https://lnkd.in/gk3giz8

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!

On the 12 of December 2018 we were interviewed by the local newspaper Haarlems Dagblad about the development of the platform i-Finish.nl.

Our startup i-Finish: Digital aftercare helps people to secure, put on hold or cancel an online or offline account or profile. There is a fast-growing demand for this service, with more and more families needing assistance with the legal and practical processes involved to reduce the digital footprint of their deceased loved ones, and prevent identity fraud.  Read more here
