Now Go Construct — Season 3


As a technologist, it’s nearly second nature to return throughout new issues
and instantly assume—how do I mix the appropriate set of instruments and
applied sciences to resolve this puzzle? It’s thrilling to contemplate the way you
may use basic constructing blocks like EC2, S3, and Lambda to resolve
advanced issues. However it’s much more wonderful to contemplate the vary of
issues you possibly can clear up utilizing the identical blocks. For instance, S3 may very well be
the cornerstone of 1 buyer’s knowledge lake and a low-cost archive for
one other.

The cloud has made it attainable for firms of each dimension to have
entry to the identical highly effective instruments, whereas giving them the flexibleness to
implement these instruments nonetheless they see match. A part of my position at AWS has
been to journey around the globe to talk with pioneering firms and
learn the way they’ve assembled totally different applied sciences to resolve their distinctive

In 2018, we created the Now Go Construct
to shine a
highlight on only a fraction of the improbable tales I hear about each
day. With that in thoughts, I’m excited to share extra tales with the
launch of Season 3 of Now Go Construct.
I encourage everybody to take a look at
the movies as they’re launched over the subsequent few months, however here’s a
sneak preview of the primary three episodes:

In episode 1 of this new season, we go to Iceland to speak with two
progressive firms utilizing AWS to sort out some actually exhausting human
issues—Nanom, an organization making use of superior nanotechnology to power
storage, and Kerecis, which makes use of pores and skin from the considerable Atlantic cod
present in Icelandic waters to create fish-skin grafts that assist heal
wounds. This episode is obtainable to look at as we speak:

In episode 2, we communicate with Hawaii-based Terraformation to learn the way
they’re serving to to deal with local weather change by accelerating and scaling
the restoration of native forests. The thought of large reforestation might
sound easy, however beneath the floor, it’s a advanced
geoengineering downside that requires each technological excellence and a
deep understanding of the nuances of the pure world. And naturally,
some attention-grabbing use of the cloud.

For episode 3, we journey to Vermont to speak with BETA about their
mission to construct an electrical airplane able to each vertical takeoff
and touchdown. From learning wind resistance and electric-powered
propulsion to the mechanics of truly constructing the aircraft and charging
infrastructure, it’s wonderful to see what BETA has completed with the
assist of AWS.

This season of Now Go Construct was an incredible enterprise, and as of this
writing, we’ve already began partaking with the subsequent set of firms
for the second half of this season. I’m excited to proceed to share
these tales with the broader neighborhood and sit up for seeing the
advanced and numerous methods firms are combining applied sciences to supply
distinctive and novel options.
