February AWS Michigan Meetup
February 13, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EST
Serverless with Thomas Knox
Doors open at 6 p.m. for those wishing to come earlier and network before the talk which starts at 6:30 p.m. We ask that if you do plan on attending, please register, so we have an accurate headcount. Food, soft drinks, and craft brews will be provided; we hope to see you there!
Serverless can be great if you have the right application for the paradigm. Let’s look at what makes a good candidate for a serverless migration, then deploy some simple python examples. Need to integrate with existing enterprise SSO? Need to migrate an application that depends on web sockets? Does your app backend need to talk to both private AWS resources and consume APIS over the public internet? Do you care about latency and fear The Cold Start™? Along the way, we’ll compare AWS console/cli tools with frameworks like Chalice. Zappa, and Serverless. Strap in, we’ll be moving fast!
