AWS Lambda introduced the serverless approach to computing in the cloud, and we’re on a mission to eliminate complexity and democratize access to parallel computing. In this presentation we’ll see how big data and other challenging enterprise architectures can be made dramatically simpler (and cheaper) by eliminating operational complexity. We present a set of serverless “recipes” that eliminate cold servers, scaling complexity, and the need to manage and deploy to fleets. We’ll construct several working examples and also demonstrate how to set up a CI/CD pipeline…all without using a single server. Along the way we’ll demonstrate AWS Lambda’s programming model, console and CLI, and show you how to easily define APIs and complete serverless apps using SAM, the Serverless Application Model. Come learn why so many are joining the Serverless revolution!
