1st Talk: Middy.js: a powerful middleware framework for your Node.js lambdas
Luciano Mammino will introduce why using middleware with Lambdas is convenient and give a very quick intro on Middy.js.
Luciano was born in 1987, the same year Super Mario Bros was released in Europe, which, by chance is his favourite game!
He started coding at the age of 12, hacking away with his father's old i386 armed only with MS-DOS and the QBasic interpreter and since then he has been professionally a software developer for more than 10 years.
He loves the fullstack web, Node.js & Serverless and co-authored "Node.js design patterns", launched fstack.link and Serverlesslab.com.
"In my experience with serverless architectures, I found out that middleware-oriented web frameworks are one of the missing building blocks in the serverless ecosystem, especially when building web APIs. Middy.js was born to fill this gap and allow Lambda developers to use the same mindset that is very common with more traditional web frameworks such as Express, Hapi or Fastify."
2nd Talk: Serverless Continuous Deployment and Observability
Serverless is about focusing on features and business value and using managed cloud services to build powerful applications. Serverless allows you to do more much faster. But there are plenty of pitfalls, all of which can sour your initial experiences of putting Serverless into production.
This talk covers the open source SLIC Starter project, showing how it is used to quickly adopt best practices and get to a successful production deployment without the pain. We will cover architecture, continuous deployment and observability.
Eoin is the CTO and co-founder of fourTheorem, a technology consultancy focused on modern applications and machine learning. He is also the author of "AI as a Service", a book on building serverless AI applications from Manning Publications. Prior to fourTheorem, Eoin worked in software architecture and product engineering in startups and large multinationals globally.
