Sustainable serverless workflows with Netlify Functions

9th August 2018 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from Microservices August Meetup

Serverless or Functions as a Service is growing in popularity and can be liberating. But the configuration of AWS Lambda and friends can be fiddly. The experience of developing, deploying, iterating and versioning your Lambda functions can be painful.

This talk will show how Netlify Functions can provide productive workflows for building with AWS Lambda. We'll go from zero to API, including infinite immutable staging and production environments, in just a few minutes. All based on familiar development workflows and practices.

Key takeaways: - An introduction to working with Netlify Functions - How to write an deploy AWS Lambdas with git-based workflow - How to create immutable versions of AWS Lambdas with one-click roll backs and version deploys - Combining Netlify features with events and triggers
