BTVJS -- Running Javascript on AWS
You've written a SPA backed by an Node.js API! But now you need a place to host your client-side and server-side javascript.... How about AWS? But, wait... there are so many services... Which one should you choose? And how to do they fit together? How should you host the SPA? Stand up a web server? What about the API? Should you provision a VM? Package the API as a docker image? Let AWS provision the infrastructure for you? When would serverless be a good choice? What IS serverless? This talk will explore some different options for hosting client-side and server-side javascript code in AWS. We'll look at how you can leverage Simple Storage Service (s3) and Cloudfront CDN to host a SPA. Then we'll dive into the back-end and see what a serverless deploy of a node API might look like using API Gateway and Lambda. We'll also discuss some other options for hosting node.js apps such as virtual machines on EC2, containers with ECS or Fargate, and letting Amazon figure it out for you with Elastic Beanstalk. This is an intermediate to advanced talk and assumes you have a fundamental understanding of javascript, node, express (or a similar framework), and docker. You'll come away with an overview of the different services provided by AWS for hosting client-side and server-side javascript and how these services fit together. Ben Glassman will be our speaker for this topic. Thanks to our generous sponsors: Symbiotic Labs ( and VCET ( If you would like to support this meetup, please visit
