Cold starts get the cold shoulder — Provisioned Concurrency has changed the game
Among the many, MANY announcements at re:Invent this year is one that settles a years-long debate or concern amongst people considering using AWS Lambda to build serverless applications: cold starts. AWS Lambda is now 5 years old. For all of that time, there’s been a concern about latency the first time a function is called. Well, fret no more:...

re:Invent Serverless Talks — Collaboration, Community, & Career Development
At re:Invent 2019, Farrah and I gave a talk on our paths into the tech industry, how serverless helped us both build some of our first products, and how serverless represents a new mindset. I’d wanted to share a version of that talk on our blog for those who couldn’t make it, though we hope to give it again in the near future. FARRAH: I’d like ...

re:Invent Serverless Talks — Serverless SaaS Deep Dive
Have you ever have that dream where you’re in a class on Classical Tibetan Algebra? And you haven’t done any homework all semester? AND it’s the final? That was me in this session: I was WAY in over my head with this one. Tod Golding’s material was so high-level that I got a nose bleed. Seriously. My nose started gushing 10 minutes in. This Por...

Reflecting on re:Invent — The Human Side of Serverless
Another day of re:Invent is over and it’s all been amazing and overwhelming. And yes, the medals really do spin. It was a huge honor to be named an AWS Serverless Hero a few weeks ago. As I prepare for more conference talks in the upcoming months, I’m reflecting on what it means to be granted this honor despite having only written my first line...

re:Invent Serverless Talks - Scaling Up to Your First 10 Million Users
After months of planning and anticipation for sponsors, attendees, and speakers alike, it’s a bit surreal that re:Invent 2019 is actually upon us! In addition to setting up shop in the Expo hall with the team to chat with re:Invent guests about their current serverless development workflows (and how Stackery can supercharge it), I made sure to ...
Best Practices Guide for Multi-Account AWS Deployments

Best Practices Guide for Multi-Account AWS Deployments
One of the central pillars of abstraction for managing applications built on AWS is the AWS account itself. When building your first application, you often start with one AWS account. There is no guide built into AWS that suggests otherwise, and you can happily build, test, and deploy a version of your application without thinking much of it. B...

Serverless Architecture Conference 2019 - Serverless Hits the Big Time in Berlin
I never thought that this would be my life. For more than a year, I’ve been talking to individual customers and getting inspired by their stories, challenges, and goals. Now, I have the spectacular opportunity to meet entire conference rooms of people who are excited to hear about my story, challenges, and goals. This is my time to give back to...
