Deliver Business Value Faster with AWS Step Functions

Details

As much as I miss our offline events, I love the ability to invite experts from around the world to our now virtual meetups. This month, #ServerlessTO is pleased to bring you AWS Serverless Hero and international speaker – Yan Cui!

Yan will explain how to achieve business agility (deliver value to your customers faster) using Step Functions (Amazon’s application orchestration tool that lets you build visual workflows: https://aws.amazon.com/step-functions/). You will learn:
* about its pros & cons,
* when to use it,
* how to design systems with it, and
* hear about real-world case studies… to model your solutions after.

So, let's add AWS Step Functions to your "IT Tool Chests"! 😀
