DevNQ October - Serverless in Production: Lessons from a Skeptic - Kris Howard


Why just migrate your existing infrastructure to the Cloud when you can remove it entirely? Serverless computing is very much the new Shiny, and proponents argue that it allows companies to focus more on their users as well as the features and business logic that are important to them.

Kris was a serverless skeptic who embarked on a project last year to convert an existing server-based application to run on AWS’s Lambda. She’ll share lessons learned from that project as well as general patterns, lessons, best practices, and pitfalls that are applicable to all serverless platforms. If your skepticism has been holding you back from implementing serverless in production, this talk aims to convert you!



Kris Howard has been building and playing on the Internet for over twenty years. She leads a team of Solutions Architects at AWS in Sydney, and she speaks regularly at tech conferences in Australia and Asia. Her Instagram account is pretty much all selfies and food.




This event will be live-streamed on Youtube from 6:30PM:
