I was able to attend the AWS re:Invent 2019 conference. A week full of learning about current and new technologies, services, and general approaches is definitely overwhelming. There is no much content available, during the conference, and as videos and slide decks afterwards. I tried to list my favourite talks. There are way too much of them.

    You can find plenty of frameworks and tools to provision your AWS resources. Some of them do a great job for a specific purpose, others are more generic. Nevertheless, I do prefer to use native CloudFormation templates as much as possible.

    With AWS AppSync, it’s easy to run your own serverless GraphQL service API. Thanks to Velocity Mapping Templates, DynamoDB, and AWS Lambda your can aim for an architecture without any maintenance at all.
