Obviously, with serverless (as with all new technologies) there are a lot of nuts-and-bolts basics to figure out.

Stackery Support For NoSQL Tables
One piece of technology that goes hand-in-hand with serverless tech is NoSQL databases. They tend to be more granularly scalable, as their scaling mechanism is some form of “just throw more shards into it.” And with recent improvements, services like AWS DynamoDB even have auto-scaling support.

Serverless Amazon Alexa Skills
After doing the standard “Hello World” serverless program, I didn’t know where to go next. What would be a simple but interesting project? It was pointed out to me that I could build an Amazon Alexa Skill using serverless. Since I had recently acquired a new Amazon Echo, this seemed like an exciting project to get started on. Alexa is the per...

Microsoft Build 2017
Microsoft is a key partner for us. They are a cloud service provider that we aim to support soon, but they are important far beyond being another infrastructure provider for Stackery.
