Accelerate time to market and improve reliability

In this eight-part, instructor-led virtual workshop series, you will explore a range of best practices to foster innovative modern application development. These workshops will put you in the shoes of an engineer at Mythical Mysfits, where you will collaborate on and build modern applications. At each stage, you will pair with the key technologies of our AWS APN partners to discover this new way of working. At the end of this lab series, you can expect to have upskilled and broadened your development capabilities.


AWS codes will be given to the first 100 people who log into the live session. Subsequent attendees are able to watch the session and ask questions, however will need to leverage their own AWS accounts to run the lab.

In this workshop, you’ll unlock the first keys to optimized project planning for agile app delivery. As an engineer at Mythical Mysfits, you are tasked with extending an existing application. You will go through the process of writing stories, estimating story points, and determining what to add to the next sprint. Learn how cPrime helps you innovate quickly and improve communications across the organization.

Join to learn how to:

  • Best practices on how to create an agile work plan
  • How to collaborate using Jira
  • How to plan and re-plan to stay agile

CI/CD allows you to rapidly deliver features that will help differentiate your business and reduce time-to-market. At your company, Mythical Mysfits, you are launching a new product and your mission is to deliver that product as reliably, quickly, and efficiently as you can—while delivering features that set your company apart. Using CloudBees CI, you will configure and manage your own Jenkins server on EKS. This master will build, test and deploy a production-ready application on Amazon EKS. In addition, it will publish, create, and push all the infrastructure-as-code requirements for your application to GitHub. This promotes the best practices of DevSecOps combined with GitOps.

Join to learn how to:

  • How small, measurable changes drive agility
  • Continuous delivery versus continuous deployment
  • How to deliver business value rapidly by releasing new features and functionality to customers faster
  • How to set up configuration-as-code for your CI/CD tooling (CloudBees CI)
  • How to templatize CI/CD pipelines to conform with best practices

Introducing integrated security scanning and testing as part of the early development cycle results in secured software delivery, compliant software, and enhanced operation reliability. At Mythical Mysfits, you cannot compromise on security. You will need to set up a CI/CD pipeline, deploy a sample application, and shift left security testing. Using Snyk, you will learn to security test and fix as early as possible. Learn how to test for common vulnerabilities and exposures in your IDE, Git Repositories, CI/CD process, and production environments.

Join to learn how to:

  • Use the right tools: Static Application Security Testing, Dynamic Application Security Testing, Runtime Application Self-Protection, and Software Composition Analysis
  • Automate compliance requirements into CI/CD pipelines and implement monitoring with auto remediation

With test automation, you can deliver high-quality software with increased confidence and a reduced cost by catching issues faster. This workshop will teach you how to shift testing left and fail fast for your new product at Mythical Mysfits, so you are able to detect problems as early as possible in the software development life cycle.

Join to learn:

  • How to fail early & fast
  • How to enable test-oriented software development
  • What are the industry leading solutions and alternatives

Infrastructure-as-code allows you to have centralized version control and track changes beyond just application code. Using an integrated development environment, you can shift left on quality and security. To explore these concepts, you will be taking your new Mythical Mysfits product and deploy it into production. In this workshop, you will get a hands-on introduction to infrastructure-as-code fundamentals and get started by provisioning a simple architecture from the Cloud9 IDE. After the architecture is in place, you will evolve your system into a container-based architecture and deploy serverless components using Pulumi.

Join to learn how to:

  • Use your favorite coding language, IDEs, and CI/CD tools for running your infrastructure-as-code
  • Build your serverless architecture-as-code
  • Audit and secure modern infrastructure-as-code in a container environment

Deployment automation allows you to develop immutable infrastructure and GitOps style development and delivery. With well-defined guardrails, you can improve collaboration and share ownership. As a Mythical Mysfits engineer, you want to better align with your operations team to deploy new features faster. In this workshop, you will deploy a pipeline and sample application. You will then learn how to create and edit infrastructure-as-code (IaC) using Hashicorp Terraform to rapidly test and deploy application and infrastructure changes.

Join to learn:

  • Why you should treat infrastructure code as you treat your application code
  • How to codify compliance and policy needs
  • How to stay resilient during major incidents (as Werner Vogles said, “Everything fails all the time”)

Observability can give you better time-to-resolution with faster and more accurate root-cause analysis while improving visibility across distributed systems and providing deeper analytics and predictions with AI ops. For this challenge, you are tasked with the hands-on work to provision AWS resources, install Dynatrace for AWS, and understand the full-stack metrics that are captured. You can expect to learn how to automatically discover applications, services, processes, and host and build a complete dependency map for the entire application environment. You’ll learn how to achieve full end-user application and infrastructure visibility and significantly reduce troubleshooting time with AI.

Join to learn:

  • How to shift left on observability
  • How monitoring and observability are crucial for innovation
  • How to leverage data from multiple systems instead of spending time reacting to issues

Featured Partner: Dynatrace

Through chaos testing, you’ll be able refine operations procedures frequently, test recovery procedures, and stop guessing at capacity. It allows you to anticipate failure and automatically recover. Now your new Mythical Mysfits product is up and running and your customers love it. So how do you prepare your organization for scale? In this workshop, you will get a hands-on introduction to chaos engineering as a site reliability engineer. As Mythical Mysfits’ sole SRE, you’ll be responsible for keeping product-based microservices architecture up and running during the company’s seasonal changes.

Join to learn:

  • Recommendations for designing chaos experiments that minimize risk and maximize learning
  • How to use chaos engineering to improve your DevOps practice, including tuning monitoring and alerting, setting SLAs and SLOs, and meeting the recommendations of the Well-Architected Framework
  • How to convince your boss by measuring and communicating the value of chaos engineering to others in the organization
