Μy name is Florian and I grew up in a small town in Bavaria, Germany.
During and after my B.Sc. in Computer Networking, I started doing software development
in Cape Town and Munich. In the time following, I did a M.Eng. in Software Engineering
next to my job. This had also been when I started my own little company, with which I
did e.g. build up the whole IT-infrastructure of a startup that recently got valued
at 4.5M Euro. Right now I'm Head of IT for a startup (HiKey Resources / hikey.io), who is
developing software for the mining industry. In addition to that, I'm a private lecturer
on "Scalable Web-Applications in the Cloud" at a German university for a Master in Software
Engineering. If I need to sum up my professional background in three expressions, it would be
AWS Enthusiast, Software Lover, Process Coach.
With AWS Lambda and AWS API Gateway, we have the possibility to create serverless web-applications that can scale to whatever size we need. By going serverless, we take away all the management tasks that are involved in keeping a web-application up and running. During this workshop we'll build a Node.js web-application based on Claudia.js, which will run without a server. As the most interesting part is concerning the backend, we'll only have a very small and simple client.
