I’m happy to speak at pretty much any developer event in Europe, the Middle East or Africa. Here are a few topics that I’m talking about at the moment,
    but if you have a specific topic feel free to ask me. I can present on most Cloud, Web, JavaScript or C# topics. Contact me at mbeeby at amazon.com

    Speaking at the AWS New York Summit July 11th 2019
    Martin spoke at the Hyperledger London Meetup and he was fantastic! Very experienced speaker with great ideas on how to make his talks entertaining and interactive!

    Developing with .NET Core on AWS

    In this demonstration-heavy session, we illustrate our latest techniques, tools, and libraries for developing a .NET application on AWS. From within Visual Studio, we will look at three different ways to run your .NET applications and show you how to integrate with various AWS services, including Logging, Managed SQL Server and Machine Learning Models. We will cover ways to build and run serverless and containerised applications as well as show you how you can move legacy.net apps to the cloud.

    Automating AWS Infrastructure with PowerShell

    New to AWS? Do you want to know where you can use your PowerShell expertise when working with the cloud? Come along to this session to see where and how you can leverage your PowerShell skills on AWS. We will cover getting started with the AWS PowerShell modules, demo the use of PowerShell with AWS Systems Manager allowing you to manage cloud resources at scale, secrets and runtime configuration management with Secrets Manager and Parameter Store, and using PowerShell on serverless technologies with AWS Lambda

    Amplify Console with a headless CMS

    In this talk we will look at Amplify Console and look at how to use a Static Generator such as Hugo or Gatsby to connect to existing CMS systems such as Wordpress or Umbraco.

    The Secret of Container Island

    Guy Beebs Threepwood arrives on Cloudy Island wanting to be a pirate. After speaking to three old pirate captains, he discovers the only opening is as a Webmaster for Groganddash web store. The pirates set him three trials. During the perilous pirate trials Guy, Modernizes a Legacy ASP.NET 3.5 website and containerises the application, scales the site using AWS and reduces the cost and complication of running the business for the pirates. Things, however, are not simple, the audience through via a real-time voting app will decide how Guy completes the trails in an adventure that would chill the bones of even the most bloodthirsty buccaneer.

    Containerise Legacy .NET Framework Web Apps for Cloud Migration

    In this session, we cover how to leverage Docker for Windows and the Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) as an effective solution for migrating legacy .NET applications to the cloud. We use Microsoft Visual Studio to demonstrate how to containerize a legacy .NET app including the Docker build and deployment process. We also cover how to deploy the container to Amazon ECS using the Amazon EC2 Container Registry (Amazon ECR) service to host the Docker image.

    Building a real-time app in .net core

    In this talk we will build a Realtime app using SignalR and ASP.NET Core. We will use docker to build and deploy the final container and discuss the numerous options for deploying containerised applications on AWS.

    A Developer Primer on Blockchain

    Come find out how you can build a peer-to-peer distributed ledger forged by consensus. Understand through code how to create “smart contracts” and "chain code" and develop a different type of transactional application that establishes trust, accountability and transparency, while streamlining business processes and legal constraints.

    Unleash your PowerShell with AWS Lambda and Serverless Computing

    In this session we will introduce the PowerShell language support in AWS Lambda before diving into AWS serverless computing. You will learn event driven design patterns and how to combine your existing PowerShell knowledge with serverless computing to innovate faster and unleash your PowerShell!

    Turn your logs into actionable data at any scale with AWS

    As Enterprises move towards disposable infrastructure, application and platform logs can often be forgotten or lost entirely as servers are replaced. These logs can be an incredible source of information for improving the understanding of your application, troubleshooting application issues, or for triggering external processes such as auto-remediation tasks. However if not captured, this key information is lost as servers are retired or replaced. In this session you will learn how to take action as we use PowerShell and AWS to build a near real-time, serverless data processing platform.

    19 things you might not know about Visual Studio 2019

    In this session, we will look at Visual Studio 2019 and explore all the latest features for the .net developer. Including but not limited to: Improved Git Workflows, Debugging Enhancements, AI-enhanced code, better search, AWS service integration, Code refactoring, code cleanup and Live Share for collaboration. Attendees will leave understanding all the new important features of Visual Studio 2019 and how it improves developer productivity.
