"Serverless" is the new buzzword for scalable applications. But underneath the hype is a solid idea: that you can focus on your application logic and business needs, rather than the systems used to run those applications. This is a change not just in how you deploy your applications, but how you architect, build, and test them.

In this presentation we'll look at a photo sharing app that runs on AWS Lambda, and depends entirely on other AWS services for its database, user management, and bulk storage. And we'll see that yes, you can too use Java "in the cloud."

In recent years he's watched Amazon Web Services grow from an interesting curiosity, to a platform that many companies rely on to run their business, to a suite of services that handle the repetitive parts of application deployment.
