A great design tool validates service architectures, their communication flows and the infrastructure required to execute them—and builds a scaffold that can be seamlessly taken forward into development. Security is a vital comp...

Best Practices Guide for Local Prototyping of Serverless Applications

But this assumption breaks down a bit as we explore the AWS platform in general. More specifically, serverless architecture challenges the system of local protot...

Six people on the cutting edge of serverless modernization

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 — 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...
