AWS DEV DAY Melbourne

The Olikka dev team attended the AWS Dev Day event in Melbourne a full-day technical event designed for the developer community, offering an innovative experience to learn about some of the hottest topics in cloud computing and hear about the latest AWS suite of technologies.

For the Olikka team, this was a good opportunity to learn about new AWS services and technologies that may benefit us or our customers, as well as to validate our approach with existing technologies.

Of special interest was the Deep Lens and AI / Machine Learning sessions. Olikka is currently developing an end user support solution using these technologies, which allows Amazon WorkSpaces users to reset their desktop without needing to call service desk – using facial recognition to identify the user. The sessions attended validated our approach, and also provided the stimulus for ideas on how we could further optimise our solution offering.

Another session of interest on .net containerisation provided some great ideas on how to cloud-enable our customers legacy applications, eliminating the need to run them on servers.

All in all a worthwhile day, thank you AWS.
