Young startups often assign the title CTO just to the most technical person and that’s their definition of the CTO role. The industry however distinguishes between three technical leadership roles, the CTO, the VP Engineering and the Chief Software Architect. The CTOs primary role is to connect business and technology. In this talk, I’ll define the role of the CTO through my experience from different companies. With examples from my previous roles I also show how business and technology are intertwined and how the CTO has to lead in both directions. I will also provide some advice, on how to grow into the CTO role.
AI, VR and Big Data are seen as the drivers of change. But what electricity is for devices, are values for social systems and society. In a world of growing complexity and digitalization, we need an equal understanding of how we relate to ourselves and others.

In this talk, we want to explore the importance of personal values, reflection and life-long learning.
We developers don't feel addressed when it comes to climate change. We don't run factories, we can work from home offices, and our laptops consume very little electricity. The environmental sinners are the others. But if you look at the figures, we are far less innocent. Bitcoin alone generates more CO2 than the 165 million inhabitants of Bangladesh. 5 seconds of Internet video generate one gram of CO2, an e-mail 4. A single Bitcoin transaction generates more CO2 than 100 km in the SUV, 2% of the total CO2 volume worldwide is generated by the Internet alone. So we are not uninvolved, but directly responsible for CO2 emissions. But what does this mean for our work? What can we do to reduce our Co2 footprint and the solutions we create? Can we really work climate neutrally if we want to?

This session gives an overview how to build production-ready and future-proof serverless applications with AWS - optimized for high-speed app delivery and lowest maintenance overhead. We will cover everything you need for a full-blown environment from dev to prod: Automated and secure multi-account setup, app development with the Serverless Application Model (SAM); queues and databases; testing, automated deployment and releases, secrets management, backup and restore, monitoring and alerting, observability and tracing.
The result is a fully managed setup, no containers or servers to maintain, no pay for idle resources; fault-tolerant and scalable to thousands of requests per second.
