I love this part of the year, there are great conferences happening between now and Feb, and I’m honoured to have been accepted as speaker to some of these amazing events.
Code Mesh (London) Nov 4th-5th
Build Stuff (Vilnius) Nov 19th-21st
I’ll be talking about how we used Neo4j to model the in-game economy of our MMORPG title Here Be Monsters, and how it enabled our small team of game designers to automate the otherwise difficult and laborious task of balancing the game.
p.s. the good folks at Build Stuff has also generously offered a 10% discount if you purchase ticket with the discount code CUI.
NDC London Dec 1st-5th
I’ll be talking about My Adventure with Elm so far, including how to use its time-travelling debugger to create web-based games and sites.
Code Mash (Sandusky, Ohio) Jan 6th-9th
I’ll be talking about both Neo4j (Modelling Complex game economy with Neo4j) and F# in Social Gaming – use of F# in the Gamesys Social backend team which supports around a million daily active users.
So many great conferences to look forward to in the next few months, so many great people to learn from! I hope you are as excited as I am and hope to catch you at the conferences!
I specialise in rapidly transitioning teams to serverless and building production-ready services on AWS.
Are you struggling with serverless or need guidance on best practices? Do you want someone to review your architecture and help you avoid costly mistakes down the line? Whatever the case, I’m here to help.
Check out my new course, Complete Guide to AWS Step Functions. In this course, we’ll cover everything you need to know to use AWS Step Functions service effectively. Including basic concepts, HTTP and event triggers, activities, callbacks, nested workflows, design patterns and best practices.
Here is a complete list of all my posts on serverless and AWS Lambda. In the meantime, here are a few of my most popular blog posts.
- Lambda optimization tip – enable HTTP keep-alive
- You are thinking about serverless costs all wrong
- Many faced threats to Serverless security
- We can do better than percentile latencies
- I’m afraid you’re thinking about AWS Lambda cold starts all wrong
- Yubl’s road to Serverless
- AWS Lambda – should you have few monolithic functions or many single-purposed functions?
- AWS Lambda – compare coldstart time with different languages, memory and code sizes
- Guys, we’re doing pagination wrong
