This week in Portland is Oscon, the annual celebration of open source software, architecture, frameworks, and tools for today’s engineers....
On July 26th, Heavybit member company Serverless held their regular meetup in our San Francisco Clubhouse. The event featured talks from Brian Leroux and David Wells. Sign up here to attend the next event in person.
Functions as a service is a recent conclusion of cloud computing. The iron age of compute racked physical servers. Early cloud compute evolved past physical servers with virtual machines. And most recently, in what appears to be an ever tightening cycle, containers have given rise to cloud functions.
Each age taught new lessons for building software architectures and this most recent iteration changes the shape of the challenges we face. In this talk Brian LeRoux shares how his team creates and deploys their bot using AWS Lambda, API Gateway, SNS and DynamoDB.
In this talk David takes us on a journey through the Serverless ecosystem, touching on where to start, how to choose a provider, where to find examples, where to find community resources, and finishing with a look at where the industry is heading. If you’re new to serverless technology, look no further than this!
