Yan Cui, AWS Serverless Hero
Serverless has changed the way we build software for the better. But it’s also a paradigm shift that challenges many of our pre-existing practices and habits, like how we test our code and how we monitor their health. In this session, Yan Cui will share many of the lessons he has learned from running serverless in production over the last five years. Including tips on testing, observability, and how to keep your AWS cost in check.
