Thursday 17:10 - 18:00

Your rating:

With the advances in our industry we can build software faster and operate it cheaper while serving more platforms and solving more problems than ever before. This is not without complications though, this new landscape requires teams to change their approach to reduce risk and ensure quality in their software.

In this presentation, Gojko will look at five important software quality challenges facing delivery teams due to these shifting roles. He will also present some emerging ideas that will help address these challenges and inspire you to rethink your approach to testing.

Getting Started with Serverless Architectures
Wednesday 9:00 - 17:00
Your rating:

This is a practical workshop for developers and architects that want to take advantage of the latest trends in cloud computing: serverless apps and cloud functions. Through hands-on exercises and teamwork, you’ll learn about using AWS Lambda and API Gateway to create responsive event-driven micro-services, auto-scaling web APIs, and high-performance web sites. By the end of the workshop, you will create a useful real-world serverless application, exploring the typical architectural patterns.

Serverless platforms significantly reduce the cost of running high-performance web sites and API services in the cloud, but with a major impact on architecture, these services also require teams to re-think how to approach sessions, storage, authorization and testing.

The author of the workshop is Gojko Adzic, a key contributor to Claudia.js, a popular open-source deployment tool for AWS Lambda.

Learn how to:

  • Use AWS Lambda and API Gateway
  • Managing sessions and state with serverless architectures
  • Start converting monolithic applications to cloud functions
  • Use Amazon Serverless Application Model (SAM) and Claudia.js to deploy Lambda functions
  • Design scalable, high-performance web sites with single-page apps backed by cloud APIs
  • Identify how serverless architecture impacts testing, monitoring and deployments

Participant prerequisites

  • Working knowledge of JavaScript. The tools and techniques you’ll learn about will apply for any programming language, but the coding examples will be in JavaScript/Node.js to keep things simple and make it easy for everyone to follow regardless of their primary platform. You don’t need expert level knowledge of JavaScript, but you should be comfortable writing simple functions and flows. You don’t need prior experience with AWS services, but this would definitely be useful.
  • An Amazon Web Services account (free tier accounts are also OK, you can register at
  • Bring your own laptop, we'll be coding all the time
