Venmo was founded on the principles of breaking down the intimidating barriers around financial transactions to make them intuitive, friendly, and even fun. And it worked: people love sending money with Venmo, and we’re growing by leaps and bounds!
But we’re only just getting started. We want to take that magic of sending money with Venmo and cascade it into every place where people use money. That means connecting people to their money in the most intuitive and fun way possible, then connecting people with each other. Users already love Venmo, but we know there are lots of things we haven’t thought of to make the experience of using Venmo even more delightful and valuable. All that’s going to take a lot of figuring out. Let’s figure it out together!

In this presentation, Java developers will learn all about the broad support AWS provides to develop, build, and deploy Java applications on AWS. Services covered:
There will be a demo on how to quickly get a Spring Boot application up and running within Fargate (a serverless container offering from AWS) using the Cloud Development Kit.
The Cloud Development Kit (CDK) is a new project aimed at easily creating Infrastructure as Code. It allows you to express AWS infrastructure in programming languages such as Java or TypeScript. This allows you to write logic such as loops and inheritance that enables developers to easily construct sophisticated AWS environments using the full power of Java to specify and materialize an infrastructure, including base provisioning and beyond.
With software projects becoming more and more complex, delivering new features into production quickly and safely has become a major challenge for most software organizations today. Making sure developers are able to develop and deploy new features in rapid cycles is a key success factor, but this task has long been neglected. The most successful software organizations are prioritizing this key success factor through a new practice called Developer Productivity Engineering. This practice is based on a culture where the entire organization collaborates to maximize developer productivity.
This talk will address the questions:
What are the challenges organizations are facing regarding developer productivity?
Who is responsible for maximizing developer productivity?
Which skills are required in developer productivity engineering?
What tools do teams use to measure and improve their productivity?
