Cloud is a mindset - not a destination. The elasticity and plethora of services available are double-edged swords: used well, you can really accelerate the pace of innovation for your company - but left unchecked, you can explode the cost and complexity in your ecosystem.
This track focuses on sharing practitioner-driven insights on what works (and what doesn't) to help inspire you to make the most out of your cloud computing journey. We dive into the world of serverless at CapitalOne, cover engineer-led cost optimizations, use durable code execution to simplify your architecture, and how to architect mission-critical applications on the cloud.
