The Serverless 12-Factor App
What is a 12-factor app? Adam Wiggins, the co-founder of Heroku, first popularized the concept in 2011, and the source of truth for the whole manifesto is 12factor.net. I say “manifesto” because it reads something like the Agile Manifesto. It’s a series of principles that, as you approach them, may make your software-as-a-service applications...

Developer's Guide to Cognito with Stackery
Stackery has a cloud-based app for building and deploying serverless applications, and we use Cognito for our own authentication.

The Future of Serverless is… Functionless?
I’m in a position where I converse with our customers and cloud service providers, and I keep track of conversations happening through blogs and social media. I then sift through all this data to identify patterns and trends. Lately, I’ve seen some talk about an architectural pattern that I believe will become prevalent in the near future. I fi...

Serverless And The DORA Research Cloud Adoption Path To Elite Performance
If you even partly believe Marc Andreessen’s 2011 “software is eating the world” comment, it stands to reason that companies who are good at software will be the winners in a digital world. Given this, I find it ironic that little large-scale research has gone into what it takes to be good at software. Despite the $6B a year spent on IT resear...

Injection Attacks: Protecting Your Serverless Functions
Security is Less of a Problem with Serverless but Still Critical While trying to verify the claims made on a somewhat facile rundown of serverless security threats, I ran across Jeremy Daly’s excellent writeup of a single vulnerability type in serverless, itself inspired by a fantastic talk from Ory Segal on vulnerabilities in serverless apps...

Creating Cognito User Pools with CloudFormation
I’ve been working on creating AWS Cognito User Pools in CloudFormation, and thought this would be a good time to share some of what I’ve learned. As an overview of this project: For sign-up, I’m creating Cognito users directly from my server app. It’s also possible to have users create their own accounts in Cognito, but that’s not what I ...
