Main talk:

Building Event-driven Serverless Applications - with Danilo Poccia (AWS)

This time we are excited to be able to have Danilo Poccia (Technical Evangelist at Amazon Web Services) do a presentation for us. Danilo is the author of the book "AWS Lambda in Action (" (Manning Publications), and will do a presentation on building event-driven serverless applications.

Danilo's description of the main talk:

We built event-driven user interfaces for decades. What about bringing the same approach to mobile, web, and IoT backend applications? You have to understand how data flows and what is the propagation of changes, using reactive programming techniques. You can focus on the core functionalities to build and the relationships among the resources you use. Your application behaves similarly to a “spreadsheet”, where depending resources are updated automatically when something “happens”, and is decomposed into scalable microservices without having to manage the infrastructure. The resulting architecture is efficient and cost effective to run on AWS and managing availability, scalability and security becomes part of the implementation itself.


Some of us will meet for a beer (at Bjørungs) after the meetup to chat about "all things tech". Everyone is invited to join!
