Lecture 1 – From AWS

Session – Introduction to .NET on AWS
In this demo-heavy session, Alexander will show the latest tools and services for developing .NET applications on AWS. He will use Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code and JetBrains Rider to demo the tooling available and different ways to run .NET applications and integrate with various AWS services. He will cover ways to build and run serverless and containerized applications as well as show how to move legacy .NET applications to the cloud.

Lecture 2 – From Google
Abdel SGHIOUAR, Senior Cloud Developer Advocate

Bio
Focused on GKE/Kubernetes, Service Mesh and Serverless.

Session
Developers are rapidly adopting containers as a way to develop and ship software. They are lightweight, easy to share and re-use and reduces the “Worked on computer” debate. But running them at scale is a different challenge. In this talk we will explore how we got to an era where containers are pretty much the standard and how you can leverage managed container platforms to run your apps safely and securely on Google Cloud.
