Rafal Gancarz (Open Credo) - Serverless for the Enterprise
As Serverless Computing is gaining more and more interest from individuals and companies small and large, it's not yet obvious how large-scale, enterprise-grade systems can be delivered using the Serverless Architectures.
In this talk I'll discuss how common Enterprise specific requirements and challenges can be addressed while building large systems using FaaS/Serverless stack on AWS.

[Update 10/01/2017] Speaker Announcement
We've got two great talks for the first meetup of 2017
James Thomas (IBM) - Serverless Framework's Multi-Provider Support
Serverless Framework has recently introduced support for multiple serverless providers You can now deploy serverless applications to OpenWhisk, Google Cloud Functions and Azure Functions as well as AWS Lambda. This allows you to develop platform-independent serverless applications. James Thomas has been working on the OpenWhisk implementation. In this talk, he will introduce the new feature, show you how to run serverless applications on different providers and explain the challenges in developing platform-agnostic serverless apps
Dave Blooman (FundApps) - Lambda Deploys with Apex
On the face of it, Lambda is simple, write code in the AWS console and hit save, but there is a lot more to it than that with hundreds of Lambdas across several languages in different projects. Having a consistent deployment story is important to ensure production usage of Lambda.
Development of Lambda functions should also be a smooth experience, without having to jump back into the AWS console constantly. At FundApps, we use Apex to manage our Lambda functions from Dev to Prod. Dave will be talking about how Apex fits into the CI workflow, as well how it fits into a startup like FundApps
