Recording of Azure Oxford talk on combatting illegal fishing with Azure (for less than £10/month)

ICYMI: The recording of the talk Jess and I gave at Azure Oxford in February is now available!

This talk focuses on our recent project with OceanMind, where we built a serverless architecture which allowed them to process vast amounts of data in close to real time. This analysis provides them with the insight they need in order to power their machine learning models and detect illegal fishing!

In this talk we ran through how to construct a cloud-first architecture based on serverless and data analytics technologies. We then explored the important principles and challenges in designing this kind of solution. Finally, we saw how the architecture we designed through this process not only provides all the benefits of the cloud (reliability, scalability, security), but because of the pay-as-you-go compute model, has a compute cost of less than £10 per month!

If you want to know more about the process involved, check out this blog post.

Software Engineer I

Carmel Eve

Carmel has recently graduated from our apprenticeship scheme.

Over the past four years she has been focused on delivering cloud-first solutions to a variety of problems. These have ranged from highly-performant serverless architectures, to web applications, to reporting and insight pipelines and data analytics engines. She has been involved in every aspect of the solutions built, from deployment, to data structures, to analysis, querying and UI, as well as non-functional concerns such as security and performance.

Throughout her apprenticeship, she has written many blogs, covering a huge range of topics. She has also given multiple talks focused on serverless architectures. The talks highlighted the benefits of a serverless approach, and delved into how to optimise the solutions in terms of performance and cost.

She is also passionate about diversity and inclusivity in tech. Last year, she became a STEM ambassador in her local community and is taking part in a local mentorship scheme. Through this work she hopes to be a part of positive change in the industry.

Carmel won "Apprentice Engineer of the Year" at the Computing Rising Star Awards 2019.
