Upcoming speaking engagement

Check out my new course Learn you some Lambda best practice for great good! and learn the best practices for performance, cost, security, resilience, observability and scalability.

Just a quick note to mention that I will be speaking to The Developers Group on the 14th Mar about NoSQL Databases and how to use them to solve common web use cases.

In this session I’ll give an overview of the NoSQL movement and compare the different types of NoSQL databases and their relative trade-offs. There will be plenty of code demonstrations to show you how you might go about using NoSQL databases such as Redis and DynamoDB to solve everyday web problems such as figuring out who’s online, etc.

Anyway, hope to see you there, do come and grab me to say hi. Smile
