Building a serverless data lake in Azure
Serverless is the saving grace of the data lake, projects known for high rates of failure. We will talk you through a successful production data lake delivery for a UK bank using Azure serverless capabilities to not only succeed but deliver in a matter of months

Serverless your containers with Knative and Cloud Run
Even if you don’t see them, containers are what runs your code in most serverless platforms. By using containers directly, you can write serverless apps in almost any language and bundle your custom runtimes and binaries. If you’re nervous about containers, we’ll even discuss community tools that build containers for you, without having to know anything about Docker! Also learn how Knative, the open source project from Google, Pivotal, Red Hat and more, provides an industry standard way to build serverless platforms and run your serverless apps on top of Kubernetes. Knative lets you tune scaling parameters, run on hardware with GPUs or multi-core processors, and more.

Observability across serverless asynchronous managed services
Serverless computing transactions are a combination of owned code (like AWS Lambda) and managed services (Like SNS, SQS, EventBridge, DynamoDB and more). Applying distributed tracing on your own code through instrumentation is relatively simple (though require a lot of work). The challenge lays with the managed service, how to trace a full transaction across services like queues, streams, and databases.

Serverless Slack Bots with Azure Durable Functions
Hear about how we built a sophisticated and user configurable Slack Bot which gives customized trade reports to financial analysts using Serverless technologies on Azure. Learn the patterns we used and the architectural decisions we made from an experienced Serverless Enterprise developer and author.

Using Serverless to help Generation Rent
Many renters find it difficult to get on the housing ladder and local start-up TenantFootprint aims to help solve this. Hear about how Serverless technology has been used to bridge the gap between boostrap and scale up.

Identifying Drivers of Poverty with Lambda and Fargate
Wouldn't it be nice if government policy could be turned into a computational model? Policy In Practice has done just that to help people understand what benefits they can claim and help councils support the most at risk from poverty and hardship. As the service grows in popularity, manual processes behind the scenes soon expand to fill the team's time and it's time to automate. Using Lambda and Fargate, Policy in Practice is transforming operations into an event-driven data pipeline.

Imposter Syndrome as a Techie
50% of employees experience imposter syndrome in their career, this rises to nearly 70% in the tech industry. I want to talk you through my own experience as a Woman in Tech and give some tips on what has helped me push myself when that Imposter Goblin won’t stop talking when you want to work.

Building Resilient Serverless Systems with “Non-Serverless” Components
Serverless functions have the ability to scale almost infinitely. While great for compute, it can be a MAJOR PROBLEM for other downstream resources. In this talk, we’ll discuss strategies and patterns to create highly resilient serverless apps that mitigate pressure on “non-serverless” systems.

Failure modes in serverless services
In DAZN, we often rely on AWS serverless services to build a global platform that needs to be highly scalable and highly available. Serverless computing allows developers to focus on the business logic implementation rather than cluster provisioning, maintenance of operative systems and containers orchestration. It also comes with great fault tolerance and reliability. How many times have you heard the phrase: 'You don't need to worry about it, AWS takes care of that for you'. While this is certainly true in some scenarios, it's not always the case. I will go through some examples of not so obvious failure modes of serverless services in AWS, and how to mitigate them, from a backend engineer perspective.

What Can You Do with Serverless ...in 2020?
Serverless is always evolving (faster than any definition) and each year new capabilities simplify existing workloads and enable new applications to be implemented in an easier, more efficient way. At AWS, we have focused on improving observability, configuration management, functions invocations, service integrations, and execution environments. Looking at some of the more recent updates, this session is introducing the reasoning behind the new features, and how to use them to reduce your architecture complexity, including real world examples of what AWS customers are doing, so that you can focus on creating value for YOUR customers.
