Beyond HTTP with serverless: Symfony Messenger on AWS Lambda

Serverless is awesome for hosting websites and API. No servers to deal with, no monitoring or scaling to care about. However, there are other kinds of applications where serverless shines: event-driven applications. Let's integrate Symfony Messenger with AWS Lambda to write job queue workers and distributed microservices.

Advanced web layout management based on Symfony

How to simplify the maintenance of complex websites and operate with less cost? How to make site building quicker without losing flexibility and extensibility needed for more complex projects? How to combine information from different systems in one place (e.g. products, content, media)? To tackle these issues we built a tool based on Symfony envisioned to be used in front of a backend system like a CMS or an eCommerce and provide a faster and more agile way to implement and maintain complex web solutions.
