Technology Development Center Amazon in Gdańsk for four years has been organizing the Innovation @ conferenceAmazon. The meeting intended for professionals from the IT sector will be held this time in the beautiful building of the Shakespeare Theater.
Innovation @Amazon is one of those annual conferences where I really learn something new, presented in an interesting way. The meeting taking place in Gdańsk, usually on the last Saturday of September, is visited by specialists not only from Poland. There are engineers from Amazon involved in the construction of the most important, innovative products.
This year's speakers will include:
Stefano La Rovere – manager of the European Department of Advanced Technbology
Max Amordeluso – responsible for the development of opportunities Amazon Alexa and Alexa Skills Kit
Giuseppe Porcelli, responsible for the architecture of solutions in Amazon Web Services
Amazon is one of those companies that do not only locate sales offices in Poland. The company is developing technology and software of the company, mainly related to Alexa. Barbara Pogorzelska, head of the team, will speak from the Polish side at the conference Amazon Search in Europe and Tomasz Stachlewski, chief architect of IT systems in Amazon Web Services.
Not just Alexa and AWS
Topics include Alexa's development and related challenges in global markets (Amir Saffari will talk about this). Participants will also hear about building from scratch their own video on demand application in serverless architecture (here we will see a veteran of the conference Tomasz Stachlewski).
In addition to the lectures in the Innovation @ programAmazon there will also be workshops for programmers led by Max Amordeluso and Giusseppe Porcelli. They will be devoted to machine learning, AWS Glue and Alexa skills.
The conference organizer is Amazon Development Center Poland, operating in Gdańsk since 2013. To register as a participant in Innovation @Amazon, just visit the conference website. It is worth remembering that this is a rather intimate rather than a mass event, and the number of places is limited.
