Serverless is the new black

Submitted Feb 18, 2018

Everybody is talking about microservices and serverless architectures, it seems to be the new standard, but how does it look like in a real world scenario? Let’s figure it out!.

I want to tell you how to use the great and pretty famous NodeJS serverless framework to build and run a purely NodeJS real time data streaming pipeline based on top of AWS services, processing more than 100k events per second.

You will learn how to code, hack and tune AWS lambda functions and how to design and build a microservices oriented infrastructure on top of AWS.

I will share my experiences and the lessons I’ve learned working with these technologies. After this talk you will be able to start coding AWS Lambda functions like a pro without even reading the docs!
