Serverless JavaScript
Serverless solutions are all the rage these days. While a bit of a misnomer, they promise easy administration, abundant scaling, and low maintenance. In our time together, we will outline what exactly serverless is and consider its pros and cons. Then we will explore building a serverless JavaScript application using the Serverless framework with AWS Lambda. Our speaker, Sam Oltz is a Senior Developer at Rapid Development Group and has been developing for the web for over 10 years. He specializes in PHP and modern JS, often using Drupal, NodeJS, and ReactJS. He and his wife live in Grand Rapids with their daughter and son. Outside of work, Sam can be found taking his kids to parks, playing piano in a worship band, or tinkering with home automation.
