Servereless, like most new paradigms, still has best practices to discover. It’s being used for everything from big data processing and web applications to IoT and mobile backends. In this talk we’ll warm up with a quick livecoding exercise to familiarize ourselves with AWS Lambda. Next we’ll discuss some best practices for serverlesss by reviewing three different serverless applications: A simple and low traffic GET based API, a high traffic and transactional REST API, and a high throughput financial validation and processing pipeline. At the end of this session you should feel confident about determining what portions of your infrastructure might benefit from a serverless model.
