Abstract

In this talk, we will try to first have a short but honest discussion about the strengths and weaknesses of the Serverless paradigm, identify where to apply it, and identify where to pass. Then we'll develop a very simple Serverless application using AWS Lambda. We'll discuss how to integrate our application with the rest of the AWS platform and what directions we can take to further expand it.
