01:10pm-02:00pm ET - Next Gen Serverless: Build Better APIs with Step Functions
Allen Helton, Cloud Architect
Lambda has been around for a while. The serverless community has fully embraced them and uses them in a multitude of use cases. But over time, the Lambdas grow with increasing complexity, resulting in many operations being performed in a single function. With the recent SDK integration updates from Step Functions, you can now transform your giant Lambda workloads to lightning fast, cheap, easily maintainable workflows. With Step Functions you are given the option to perform tasks both synchronous and asynchronously, so you can optimize your workloads to stop paying for compute you don't need. Bonus points, say goodbye to cold starts!
