This Meeting WILL NOT BE RECORDED
It comes as no surprise that cloud migration and micro-service architectures are all the rage right now. In fact, one of the most satisfying parts of my job is spinning up infrastructure, analyzing and figuring out how to get all the pieces of service layers to play nicely together in the cloud. As we aim for cloud-native design, the idea of serverless applications become more and more alluring.
In this talk, I would like to discuss some of the tools available to us with which we can build serverless applications. Additionally, I would like to break down a simple application into its pieces and examine the role of each AWS service offering and how we wired them together. We will discuss service responsibilities and configuration of API Gateway, Lambda, S3, DynamoDB, SNS, SQS and more. Time permitting, we will also discuss the use of Cloud Formation to orchestrate and deploy a serverless application.
