If you have any suggested talks, then please submit it here (! ---- Agenda: 6:30 - Arrive, brief introductions 6:40 - Sustainable serverless workflows with Netlify Functions 7:20 - Second Talk/ Demo 8:00(ish) - Finish - Drinks and networking ---- Sustainable serverless workflows with Netlify Functions Phil Hawksworth Serverless or Functions as a Service is growing in popularity and can be liberating. But the configuration of AWS Lambda and friends can be fiddly. The experience of developing, deploying, iterating and versioning your Lambda functions can be painful. This talk will show how Netlify Functions can provide productive workflows for building with AWS Lambda. We'll go from zero to API, including infinite immutable staging and production environments, in just a few minutes. All based on familiar development workflows and practices. Phil is Head of Developer Relations at Netlify, the fastest growing automation and hosting platform for modern websites. With a passion for browser technologies, and the empowering properties of the Web, he loves seeking out ingenuity and simplicity, especially in places where over-engineering is common. Phil’s career in web development spans almost 20 years and includes time as a Software Engineer at Verisign, an Open Source Evangelist at British Telecom, and Technology Director at R/GA where he worked with clients around the world such as Nike, Google, Hyundai and Samsung to bring engaging and effective experiences to the widest audience possible. Key takeaways: - An introduction to working with Netlify Functions - How to write an deploy AWS Lambdas with git-based workflow - How to create immutable versions of AWS Lambdas with one-click roll backs and version deploys - Combining Netlify features with events and triggers

What we're about

The Architectural Monolith’s days are numbered. As companies are becoming more and more agile, and see how they can now adapt in order to innovate and compete faster than their competition, software development teams are being forced to maintain and evolve large, monolithic applications at a pace of change that those architectures were never meant to withstand, let alone embrace!

Microservices are a new approach to architecting applications. They are simple, single-purpose, lightweight architectural components that enable you to deliver software faster. The microservice architectural approach also aims to lead to software that thrives on change while at the same time being secure, performant, and stable.

This meet up is for people interested in architecting, designing, deploying and maintaining micro service based software architectures.
