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

AWS Immersion Day Edinburgh: Seamless APIM with Kong Konnect and Amazon EKS

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.

  • Set up Kong Konnect with an Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). environment.
  • Learn what services, routes, and plugins are.
