Now Go Construct – Season 3

As a technologist, it’s nearly second nature to return throughout new issues
and instantly suppose—how do I mix the fitting set of instruments and
applied sciences to unravel this puzzle? It’s thrilling to think about the way you
might use elementary constructing blocks like EC2, S3, and Lambda to unravel
complicated issues. Nevertheless it’s much more superb to think about the vary of
issues you may resolve utilizing the identical blocks. For instance, S3 may very well be
the cornerstone of 1 buyer’s knowledge lake and a low-cost archive for
one other.

The cloud has made it attainable for corporations of each dimension to have
entry to the identical highly effective instruments, whereas giving them the pliability to
implement these instruments nonetheless they see match. A part of my function at AWS has
been to journey world wide to talk with pioneering corporations and
find out how they’ve assembled totally different applied sciences to unravel their distinctive

In 2018, we created the Now Go Construct
to shine a
highlight on only a fraction of the improbable tales I hear about each
day. With that in thoughts, I’m excited to share extra tales with the
launch of Season 3 of Now Go Construct.

wounds. This episode is obtainable to observe immediately:

In episode 2, we communicate with Hawaii-based Terraformation to find out how
they’re serving to to deal with local weather change by accelerating and scaling

sound simple, however beneath the floor, it’s a complicated
geoengineering drawback that requires each technological excellence and a
deep understanding of the nuances of the pure world. And naturally,
some attention-grabbing use of the cloud.

For episode 3, we journey to Vermont to speak with BETA about their
