AWSome Day Belgrade 2019

When you are a company competing in a cloud computing market it is key to reach out to your users, share your novel products and gather feedback from them. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a company that leads the cloud computing market and  certainly can be used as a role model when it comes to organizing user-centric events. At AWS there are a number of event levels. From events like re:Invent , which is one of the largest conferences in the world, which brings 50,000 people to Las Vegas, over AWS Summits , which happen in major cities across the world, all the way to local one day events like AWSome Days.

The event was organized in collaboration between Yiannis Nasios , Territory Manager CEE / South at Amazon Web Services and technical experts from AWS and and from our delivery partner, Fast Lane .

Organization Since the JavaScript developer community in Serbia is not a small one, the only logical venue for such an event was a movie theater multiplex, having in mind that 600 attendees visited the conference. This is especially convenient when we consider that

As good tradition dictates, hot topics in software development are best discussed and spread by organizing topic-specific conferences and Serverless is no excuse to this tradition. In 2017 in London, Serverless Days conference was born. During its brief history it visited nearly 20 cities around the globe and on September 13th it came to our home town of Belgrade, Serbia. Here at DEVersity we are focused on keeping a close eye at software development trends and we are well into Serverless applications development, so the opportunity to hear from, and meet in person, so many great names of the Serverless world made our decision to visit this conference in greater numbers very easy. Eleven of us attended, and here are our impressions: Organizaton This extremely valuable event for
