Last week we had a great time meeting Puppet friends and fans among the more than 6,000 people who attended AWS NYC. Now we’re gearing up for next week’s AWS Summit in San Francisco, one of our favorite cities – and a veritable thunderhead of cloud technologists.
We hope we’ll see you on April 30 at the Moscone Center. You won’t want to miss AWS Senior VP Andy Jassy talking about new AWS products. Also in the lineup: Greg Johnson, head of analytics and consumer insights at Nokia Xpress Internet Services; Sean Beausoleil, lead engineer at Mailbox; and Ryan Tudhope, co-founder and VFX supervisor at Atomic Fiction (we hope he brings some film clips!).
Puppet Labs will be at Booth 110, so come talk with Brian Lake, director of inside sales; Ryan Coleman, product owner for the Puppet Forge; and Christy McCreath, product marketing manager. They’ll all be happy to answer your questions about Puppet, and dig through boxes of Puppet t-shirts to find your size.
Here are a few AWS San Francisco sessions that caught our eye:
Hybrid IT – steps to building a successful model. Brian Adler, senior services architect at RightScale, talks about what to consider when deciding how to use AWS in combination with on-premises servers. He’ll look at a few different use cases, review reference architecture for hybrid cloud and different technologies available to manage hybrid environments.
Building web scale applications with AWS with Dan Cuddeford, enterprise solutions architect, and Matt Trescot, solutions architect. Learn about architectural patterns that support highly available services that are scalable, low cost, low latency and allow for Agile development.
Continuous deployment practices with production, test and development environments running on AWS. Learn about key concepts and design patterns for continuous deployment and continuous integration from Chris Munns, solutions architect; Chris Barclay, senior product manager; and Mike Limcaco, enterprise solutions architect.
