This talk will include a brief overview of Infrastructure as Code - why it's important and helpful and how to get started generating IaC via AWS Application Composer.
AWS Application Composer is a drag-and-drop interface within the AWS console or via the VScode extension that speeds up the provisioning of AWS resources.
NOTE: This event will be hosted via Zoom, all registered participants will receive Zoom link 15 minutes before the event via email.
Anna Spysz is a frontend engineer on the Portland-based team that built AWS Application Composer, a GUI for building serverless applications in the AWS Console and IDE. Before graduating from a coding bootcamp, Anna worked as a journalist, author, and translator for a decade, and yes, she will correct your grammar in PRs. When not improving the serverless developer experience, Anna enjoys snowboarding in the winter, kung fu fighting in the summer, and playing music in the little spare time she has.
Danielle Heberling is a software engineer with a background that includes being a musician and teaching at a K-8 public school. She got her start in the Serverless world through her work at Stackery. Stackery was acquired by AWS and was relaunched as AWS Application Composer. In 2023, she was named an AWS Serverless Hero. Overall, she’s passionate about building things that make the world a better place, whether that be through social change or a good laugh. When she’s not coding, you can often find her reaching back to her teaching roots by mentoring folks from underrepresented groups who would like to make a career switch into tech.
