My colleague Matt Jackson and I gave a talk on AWS certifications at the AWS UK User Group, an online event streamed live on Twitch. The slides are available here and a recording of the event is available on YouTube. It was a very slick and well organized event (kudos to the organizers!) and our presentation was preceded by an interesting panel discussion on re:Invent 2021 so check out the full stream on YouTube if you missed it.

Cloud Natives UK Meetup

I recently gave a lightning talk on assessing EKS security with kube-bench at Cloud Native UK, a joint virtual event being put together by the Cloud Native groups in Manchester, Wales, Glasgow, and Edinburgh, representing the cloud native communities from each of the countries in mainland UK. This was a shorter but updated version of the talk I gave at the end of last year at two AWS User Group meetups. The slides are available here and a recording of the event is available on YouTube (my presentation starts at 23:44). It was a very slick and well organized event (kudos to the organizers!) with very interesting presentations so check out the whole even on YouTube if you missed it.
