AWS Cloud Kata for Startups and Developers


AWS Cloud Kata Hong Kong is back! This is an annual, free, day-long event of solutions and interactive live discussions aimed at incubators and startups, growing companies and the VC community. It is the perfect environment for business and technical stakeholders to share their successes, learn best practices, and adopt new technologies.

Exclusively for startups, in the morning session, you will know more about the transformation of startups. We will have a host of exciting AWS and guest speakers, explaining the transformation, iteration and convergence of startups. And you definitely don't want to miss the sharing on Hong Kong’s startup ecosystem exploring the funding and support options open to forward-looking businesses.

Later in the afternoon, we have three technical breakouts purposely designed for developers or anyone who wants to get more technical:

Track 1 – Serverless & Containers – Serverless architectures allow you to build and run applications and services without needing to provision, manage, and scale infrastructure. And containers allow you to easily package your application's code, configurations, and dependencies into easy-to-use building blocks that deliver environmental consistency, operational efficiency, developer productivity, and version control.

Track 2 – IoT & Mobile – AWS makes it easy to get started with IoT (Internet of Things). In this track, we will help new and experienced developers get the most out of connecting IoT devices to the cloud. Besides, when developing mobile apps, you want to focus on the activities that make your app great, and not worry about building, managing, and scaling the backend infrastructure. In this track, we will cover how AWS helps you easily develop and test your apps, and engage users.

Track 3 – Hands-on Workshop – Gain experience in some of our newer AWS services through hands-on workshops. AWS Instructors and Solutions Architects will walk you through step-by-step instructions on how to build serverless architectures, develop mobile applications, and connect to AWS IoT. Seating is limited and first-come, first-served, so arrive early to reserve your seat.

Track 4 – Startup Insights – Geared specifically at providing entrepreneurs with the solid business context essential to ensuring startup success in Hong Kong, with guests speakers from both successful startups and VCs at panels on why the startups would leave the corporate world and build their own business, women in technology, fintech and the latest startup trends.
