  2. AWS reInvent2019: How to Build a Digital Bank Using AWS (STP12)

    Learn more about AWS Startups https://go.aws/2RcrpzA. Monzo has built a bank for 3.5 million customers, and it’s growing fast, primarily by leveraging open-source cloud-native technology. From working with banking regulators to providing scalable, secure infrastructure primitives, AWS was an obvious choice for Monzo’s foundation. In this talk, Monzo engineers Chris Evans and Suhail Patel explain how services such as Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, AWS IAM, Amazon GuardDuty, and AWS Shield enable processing payments under tight latency and reliability tolerances. They also share what it takes to run Monzo’s own minimal physical infrastructure and how they have linked it to AWS Direct Connect to securely and reliably transmit payments

  6. Any Company Can Offer Financial Services

    The first wave of fintech companies a decade ago proved that we don’t need physical locations for banking. Now, the next wave is unlocking the remaining infrastructure for building better financial services: banking licenses, payment processors, regulatory compliance, and so on. Because startups (and incumbents) can now draw on these APIs and more, they can create better products that help many, many more people. It also means that any company could become a financial services company… imagine banking with your favorite brand!

    Familiar Smells I’ve Detected in Your Systems Engineering Organization and How to Fix Them

    Dave Mangot

    Hide details ▾ Over the course of my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work with a number of organizations on their operational maturity. After doing "systems archeology" a number of times, starting at new organizations, I began recognizing certain signature "smells" that indicated that there was something that could be improved, and often had a pretty good idea how those situations came to be.

    Things like the volume of pager alerts can be indicators of poor signal to noise ratios, or overworked infrastructure, or broken architectures. Things like elaborate change control can be signs of inadequate testing, or lack of automation (as if a review by people unfamiliar with the changes makes it safer). Recovery mechanisms that are never tested are never going to actually work in the case that they are needed except in the most trivial of cases.

    There are many such examples with single points of failure, competing change mechanisms, scaling challenges, outsourcing of manual automation (not a typo), badly scoped runbooks, immature monitoring, multi-generational monitoring systems, and more, that are signs that we can do better.

    In this talk, we’ll talk about some fun that was had…
