Synopsis:

Serverless architecture has become a hot topic as of late within the tech speaking community, but what does it look like when we deploy it in production out in the real world?

When jumping into new technologies, it's important to be pragmatic about the potential benefits they offer you and any pitfalls that you might not be aware of immediately before committing to it. Serverless applications is one of those technologies that theoretically brings about many advantages, but how do you go about actually building something with it?

This talk aims to be a deep dive into building a Serverless application from scratch leveraging technologies on AWS, describing the challenges and roadblocks that are faced along the way from a real case study. We will discuss topics from architecting a solution to a given problem, and delivering a continuous integration pipeline and infrastructure-as-code.

“I’ve been a software engineer and consultant for 8+ years, primarily focusing on the .NET ecosystem. Recently, I’ve gained interest in cross-platform and cloud development as a result of my involvement in multiple projects spanning across different platforms. As a tinkerer, it always excites me to take a deep dive into new technologies. Most recently, Docker on AWS. If you want to get me stoked, speak to me about immutable infrastructure, and cats!"
