Building a digital pharmacy

Pharmacy hasn’t changed much in 100 years. Electronic systems have been introduced for managing stock and processing customer orders, but the experience each customer receives hasn’t changed.

18 months ago, Well started bringing pharmacy into the digital age. This is the story of how we:

  • Built and launched a new mobile medicine delivery venture, growing to over 20,000 customers in the first 6 months.
  • Met the scaling challenges with an entirely serverless technology stack on AWS.

We’ll share the challenges that we faced (both technical and organisational), the tools we used to deal with them and what we learned along the way.

Objective of the talk

Learn about Serverless architectures, security concerns, description of many use cases where we have applied Serverless technology in the last few years (we run one EC2 instance, and that’s just for our Grafana dashboards), costs of Serverless.
