🆕 Video Course Out Now: Rapid Docker on AWS

Meet us at re:Invent (Update)

Andreas Wittig – 08 Nov 2018

Michael and I are looking forward to attending re:Invent 2018 in Las Vegas. The most important reason for us to fly off to the other side of the world is to meet old and new friends. Unfortunately, time is limited, and therefore we have already started scheduling meetings to be able to have as many interesting conversations as possible.

Meet us at re:Invent in Las Vegas

Personal Meeting

If you are asking yourself one of the following questions, or if you have found groundbreaking answers to one of these questions, please let us know. We want to talk to you!

  • Monitoring and Incident Management - How do you make sure you are not missing any failures or service degradations? Do you need more than CloudWatch to monitor your systems? How do you make sure the whole DevOps team is responding and fixing incidents in an agile environment?
  • AWS Bootstrapping - What is the easiest and fastest way to build your cloud infrastructure from scratch? How do you achieve production-readiness?
  • Going Serverless - Should I use AWS Lambda & Co. for my specific use case? How does the development process change when building Serverless applications? What happens to operations in a Serverless world?

Fill out our Meet us at re:Invent form if you want to schedule a 20-minute meeting with either Michael or me, please.

Andreas Wittig

I’m an independent consultant, technical writer, and programming founder. All these activities have to do with AWS. I’m writing this blog and all other projects together with my brother Michael.

In 2009, we joined the same company as software developers. Three years later, we were looking for a way to deploy our software—an online banking platform—in an agile way. We got excited about the possibilities in the cloud and the DevOps movement. It’s no wonder we ended up migrating the whole infrastructure of Tullius Walden Bank to AWS. This was a first in the finance industry, at least in Germany! Since 2015, we have accelerated the cloud journeys of startups, mid-sized companies, and enterprises. We have penned books like Amazon Web Services in Action and Rapid Docker on AWS, we regularly update our blog, and we are contributing to the Open Source community. Besides running a 2-headed consultancy, we are entrepreneurs building Software-as-a-Service products.

We are available for projects.

You can contact me via Email, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
