Evolving AWS Infrastructure from $0 to $1k / mo

by Greg Ledray | at Minnebar 18 | 10:20 – 11:05 in Challenge | View Schedule

You can host a full stack web application - frontend, backend, database - on AWS for $0/month... but it's flimsy and nonperformant. When you start a new company or are building a prototype, that might be enough. But as your app is adopted by more and more users you will need to upgrade your infrastructure.

This "Evolving AWS Infrastructure" will be the focus of the talk. I'll briefly explain a sample SAAS application (frontend, backend, database, authentication) before launching it into AWS infrastructure costing $0/month with the free tier. I'll then walk you through iterative steps which evolve that infrastructure from its flimsy beginnings into a more secure and reliable system which complies with a variety of data security, retention, and management requirements.

All templates and code will be available on Github after the talk.
