Now Go Construct – Season 3

As a technologist, it’s virtually second nature to return throughout new issues
and instantly assume—how do I mix the best set of instruments and
applied sciences to resolve this puzzle? It’s thrilling to contemplate the way you
might use elementary constructing blocks like EC2, S3, and Lambda to resolve
complicated issues. But it surely’s much more superb to contemplate the vary of
issues you possibly can clear up utilizing the identical blocks. For instance, S3 may very well be
the cornerstone of 1 buyer’s information lake and a low-cost archive for
one other.

The cloud has made it attainable for firms of each dimension to have
entry to the identical highly effective instruments, whereas giving them the flexibleness to
implement these instruments nonetheless they see match. A part of my position at AWS has
been to journey all over the world to talk with pioneering firms and
learn the way they’ve assembled totally different applied sciences to resolve their distinctive

In 2018, we created the Now Go Construct
to shine a
