On February 18, Slash and the AWS partner held AWS re:Invent, the annual recap event for 2020.
Over two and a half hours, AWS experts provided updates and insights for the latest cloud services and capabilities in modern application development, analytics, networking and security among other areas. This event summed up the results of the original AWS recap, held in December 2020.
Luis Puentes, Slash’s Full Stack Developer, presented both Slash and AWS in the opening keynote, and from there, the other 3 speakers took the floor. Senior Developer Advocate Donnie Prakoso, Raja SP of Senior Manager Analytics Specialty, Solutions Architect Phone Myint Kyaw and Senior Solutions Architect Frank Ang did a brilliant job, putting all updates into precise messages categorized in 4 large groups: developer experience, data and analytic, infrastructure and mobile, and governance.
Some of these updates revealed, for example, that AWS Lambda now supports Container Image, showed the group ecosystem around AWS Glue for Big Data and Data Lake architecture, and demonstrated the new instance OS type for EC2 - MacOS support (it allows to build apps online with AWS!).
The Slash team attended AWS re:Invent both online and in the office, excited to learn about the new features and services supported on AWS, and happy to have one of their own as the keynote speaker.
