Last Friday, we had the honor of hosting the AWS User Group Sarajevo meetup at CosmoHub Coworking, Event & Startup Space. We were extremely pleased to host AWS professionals from Slovenia and Montenegro, who came to convey their long-standing knowledge of the AWS service. 

We would like to thank the AWS User Group community in Sarajevo, as well as Dzenan Dzevlan and Dzenana Dzevlan for the excellent organization of the meetup. Thank you for the great company and the opportunity to learn something new in the domain of AWS!

The team from Slovenia came led by Alen Krmelj and Urban Jurca, head of Bitstamp – one of the first cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. Alen and Urban gave two very important lectures on the security and availability of AWS services on a global scale. They selflessly shared their knowledge, and those present had the opportunity to ask questions related to AWS services.

The role of the first lecturer was taken by Alen Krmelj – Infrastructure Team Lead at Bitstamp. Allen spoke on the topic “SCS – better approach to accessing credentials”. Managing secrets and credentials is of utmost importance to any company that has a need to hide information even from company employees. 

At the lecture, attendees learned how Bitstamp solved this problem with the help of AWS and in-house custom solutions. You can read more at the presentation which can be found here.

After Alen, Urban Jurca Bitstamp’s Head of Infrastructure gave a lecture on “AWS RAM – Sharing is Caring”. From Urban, attendees were able to hear about resource sharing through multiple AWS accounts. You can learn more about this topic on the presentation here.

The third lecturer was an AWS User Group community builder from Montenegro, who is also a Cloud Architect for the company Crayon, and the owner of six AWS certificates – Marin Radjenović.
