• Serverless Socializing

    Serverless Socializing: How I Built a Quick Multi-Player Serverless Game Working with a fully remote team, it's been hard to develop some team camaraderie. To help with this, we played various multiplayer, cloud-based games! And of course, I tried to build my own. In this talk, we'll play the game and understand how it is built with a serverless architecture in mind!

  • Documentation: The Missing Pieces

    Most documentation, technical tutorials, and quick demos are written in a certain way. But for the true beginners, the career-transitioners, or those crossing domains? That technical content is certainly not written for them! Funnily enough, these same shortcomings affect “technical” people too, especially when it comes to learning something new. In this talk, I’d like to explore the ways we can make our documentation better by considering more kinds of people. We’ll discover common oversights and assumptions most documentation has built-in by default and learn how to fix them. We’ll also strengthen our technical writing skills to ensure, to the best of our ability, that every anticipated reader of our documentation never feels lost or frustrated. By the end of this talk, you’ll leave and never write documentation in the same way again…and that’s a good thing!

  • Multi-Cloud Magic: Leveraging Multi-Cloud Clusters in Real-World Scenarios

    As the cloud development options and architectures continue to evolve, we've finally found ourselves at the next new thing: Multi-Cloud. What is it? Do we really need it? How would you take advantage of a multi-cloud solution? In this talk, I'll take you through several real-world use cases where multi-cloud clusters are being used today!

  • There is NO Developer Uniform!

  • Say YES to NoSQL

    If you're like many developers, relational databases are your bread and butter. They work (mostly) and are a logical solution to your application's data management needs. They've been the standard and that's what's always worked. And then...NoSQL databases came along. You may find that you're now in a spiral of questions: What is this? Is this better than a relational database? What do we need another database technology for? Does this mean there's no structured query language? Do I migrate my existing database to this model? In this talk, I'll answer these questions (and many more) to help you understand the what, how, and why of NoSQL databases as it relates to the modern applications we strive to build today. You'll leave with a definitive guide on NoSQL databases and be confident in deciding whether or not it is the right database solution for you!
