Riding AWS in Preview

We get excited about new services at re:Invent. We would like to try the latest ones just after the keynotes but we might have to deal with services in preview. And a preview might last a long time, even more than a year (see Aurora Serverless v2, for example). What are the rules of the game? What are the benefits? What are the challenges? What about NDA and costs?

Looking forward to present Riding AWS in Preview at the upcoming Berling AWS Group Meetup. The meetup in February will be virtual and will take place on Tuesday, 15th of February.

Can we draw the New York City skyline with Aurora Serverless v2?

An exciting day being on stage at re:Invent talking about elasticity and relational databases on the cloud as part of the Community Track. The video of the session will be available soon!

A prerecording of the session is available now on YouTube. Note: this is not the on-site in Las Vegas.

(Video) What about the AWS Free Tier?

In recent months many experts in the AWS community have been questioning the AWS Free Tier, advocating for sandbox accounts on AWS and hard billing limits that cannot be exceeded. What safety nets can you put in place as a developer and what are the most common mistakes to avoid unexpected bills when experimenting with new services with the AWS Free Tier? My take on the matter.

You will enjoy a more recent take on the subject at DevOps Conference – London in April 2022.
