AWS offers a wide range of cloud computing services and technologies, but we rarely state opinions about which services and technologies customers should choose. When it comes to building our own services, our engineering groups have strong opinions, and they express them in the technologies they pick. Join Tim Bray, Senior Principal Engineer, to hear about the high-level choices that developers at AWS and our customers have to make. Here are a few: Are microservices always the way to go? Serverless, containers, or serverless containers? Is relational over? Is Java over? The talk is technical and based on our experience in building AWS services and working with customers on their cloud-native apps.
