Doors open at 6 p.m. for those wishing to come earlier and network before the talk which starts at 6:30 p.m. We ask that if you do plan on attending, please register, so we have an accurate headcount. Food, soft drinks, and craft brews will be provided; we hope to see you there!

Serverless can be great if you have the right application for the paradigm. Let's look at what makes a good candidate for a serverless migration, then deploy some simple python examples. Along the way, we'll compare AWS console/cli tools with frameworks like Chalice. Zappa, and Serverless.

Like many things, serverless is easy right up until you try to do something interesting. Do you:

- need to integrate with existing enterprise SSO?
- have a backend that needs to talk to both private AWS resources and
consume APIS over the public internet?
- need to migrate an app that depends on websockets?
- care about latency?
- fear The Cold Start™?

If time permits, we'll look into these real-world situations and talk about your options. Bring your hard-won experience and we'll swap stories about what works. Strap in, we'll be moving fast!
