Amazon DynamoDB is a fully managed, multi-region, multi-active database that delivers single-digit millisecond performance at any scale and powers many of the world’s fastest growing businesses such as Dropbox, Disney+, Samsung, and Netflix. In this virtual workshop, AWS Senior Practice Manager, DynamoDB expert Rick Houlihan will go deep into a few of DynamoDB's key features and share tips and best practices to help customers learn how to maximize scale and performance. Among these are using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) to restrict PartiQL from doing scans, using region tagging to facilitate global tables, and exporting to Amazon S3 for audit trail workflows that do not require low latency response or need to support ad hoc queries. Join Rick for this hands-on advanced technical session to explore each of these features in detail, with detailed examples.

  • Learn about the foundation of NoSQL databases.
