Talk 1:
Save Cash and Carbon – with Graham Zabel, Head of DevOps Devoteam

Session Abstract: Too often, enterprise scale business leaders are misled into thinking that their rising cloud costs can be solved using only the standard FinOps practices. These techniques are a great starting point, however they generally only focus on directly affecting the spend items showing up in the billing, leaving all the indirect causes unaddressed. This creates a situation where businesses think they are solving their Cloud spend problem, when in reality the biggest problems have not been measured or addressed.

Talk 2:

Gabriel will talk through the lessons learned from adopting Crossplane, the challenges it solves, what excites him and what doesn’t.

Gabriel is a senior engineer, focusing on the cloud and DevOps / platform space for the last ten years, and currently works as a senior platform engineer @ JPMorgan.

Sure. But can you play Doom on it? – with Thomas Michael Wallace

From calculators to thermostats, you can find a port of Doom for pretty much everything. But what about serverless? This talk aims to answer that important technological question.

Taking a tour-de-force of AWS’ more eclectic serverless offerings, and finding novel ways to use (or possibly abuse?) them, we’ll iterate our way to the perfect Doom port for the serverless connoisseur.

Who knows? Some of it might even be useful.

At Amazon, our team owned an internal data platform built on top of AWS.
