AWS Lambda for Java Architects

Lambda is a "serverless" architecture that relieves you of hardware and scaling set-up concerns. Amazon AWS introduced Lambda at AWS Re-Invent 2014. Adoption of Lambda has grown exponentially ever since. Netflix, Cmp.LY, VidRoll, and other organizations are introducing Lambda into their technical stacks. In addition, Amazon competitors are working aggressively to introduce competitors to AWS Lambda. Lambda has many uses within applications as well as in a Dev Ops world.

This presentation will provide you with an overview for AWS Lambda and the products advantages and disadvantages. I'll include an overview on how to create and deploy Lambdas providing Java examples along the way. I'll also include a discussion of best practices and when use of Lambda is appropriate. This presentation is targeted for senior Java developers and architects. Please note that AWS Lambda is not to be confused with Java 8 Lambda expressions; they are different subjects entirely.
