Codemotion DevCast

Looking forward to be one of the very first speakers for the new weekly format from Codemotion, DevCast. On March 18th, I will be speaking about cost optimization on AWS. The title and abstract are in English but the talk will be in Italian

Watch Your Wallet! Cloud Anti-Patterns to Avoid Your AWS Bill Skyrocketing

Should you really always run your cluster in multiple availability zones? How can a transition rule to Glacier double your storage costs? I want to monitor and understand my data transfer costs, where should I start? Why are backups eating my database budget? What, one more storage class on S3? Following so-called “best practices” works only when you fully understand the implications, costs included. We will address a few cloud anti-patterns, making your bill smaller and your deployment better.

DevOps Pro Europe 2021

Looking forward to be back as a speaker at DevOps Pro Europe next May. This year I will cover cost optimization on the cloud: “Watch Your Wallet! Cloud Anti-Patterns that Make Your AWS Bill Skyrocket”. See you at #DevOpsProEurope!

Cloud Computing: Come Creare una Applicazione Serverless

In October 2017 I presented for the first time at Codemotion in Berlin. Three years later, I designed and recorded my first course for them: “Cloud Computing: Come Creare una Applicazione Serverless” is a module of fourteen short lessons in Italian, just over two hours of video content plus exercises. The course uses a simple URL shortener as an example of a serverless application on AWS. It is now available on Codemotion and it is free!

CloudWorld 2021

I am taking three months off from public speaking to recharge my batteries and work on new content, but I will back on stage next February at CloudWorld 2021 to talk about cost optimization on AWS with a special focus on storage and data. This is a new topic I never covered before but that I am really passionate about. The title and abstract of my session at DeveloperWeek are below.

Learn how to manage better your costs on AWS, make your bill less scary or your credits last longer
