In-Person, Hands-on Workshop with Kong & AWS

Digital transformation is built on APIs. Modern organisations use APIs to modernise access to legacy systems, liberate siloed data, and break down monolithic applications into smaller, easier-to-manage components to rapidly increase their pace of innovation and deliver new digital experiences.

Paramount to successful modernisation is an API-first strategy that leverages cloud-native technologies to achieve security, automation, and performance at scale.
In this hands-on workshop, we will demonstrate how Konnect and AWS can help your organisation modernise by adopting an API management model.

Learning Objectives
- Get an architectural overview of the Kong Konnect platform
- Set up Kong Konnect with an Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). environment
- Learn what services, routes, and plugins are
- Access an existing API service using a defined route

- Use the platform to address the following use cases: Authentication ( API Key and OpenID Connect ) | Rate limiting | Response Transformer | Invoke AWS Lambda | Proxy caching
