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 best set of instruments and
applied sciences to unravel this puzzle? It’s thrilling to think about the way you
might use basic constructing blocks like EC2, S3, and Lambda to unravel
complicated issues. However it’s much more superb to think about the vary of
issues you possibly can resolve utilizing the identical blocks. For instance, S3 might be
the cornerstone of 1 buyer’s knowledge lake and a low-cost archive for
one other.

The cloud has made it doable 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 function at AWS has
been to journey world wide to talk with pioneering firms and
find out how they’ve assembled completely different applied sciences to unravel their distinctive
challenges.

In 2018, we created the Now Go Construct
collection
to shine a
highlight on only a fraction of the implausible 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 following 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
modern firms utilizing AWS to sort out some really laborious human
issues—Nanom, an organization making use of superior nanotechnology to vitality
storage, and Kerecis, which makes use of pores and skin from the plentiful Atlantic cod
present in Icelandic waters to create fish-skin grafts that assist heal
wounds. This episode is obtainable to observe as we speak:

In episode 2, we communicate with Hawaii-based Terraformation to find out how
they’re serving to to deal with local weather change by accelerating and scaling
the restoration of native forests. The thought of huge reforestation might
sound easy, however beneath the floor, it’s a complicated
geoengineering drawback that requires each technological excellence and a
deep understanding of the nuances of the pure world. And naturally,
some fascinating 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 really constructing the aircraft and charging
infrastructure, it’s superb 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 following set of firms
for the second half of this season. I’m excited to proceed to share
these tales with the broader neighborhood and look ahead to seeing the
complicated and numerous methods firms are combining applied sciences to supply
distinctive and novel options.
