It doesn’t take long before the myth of serverless is exposed: you need more infrastructure than ever. What’s more, because it’s running on someone else’s computer, you need to learn their proprietary technology. This talk guides you through every step in building a full serverless application.
Building a static website using serverless technology is easy – fire up an S3 bucket, and you’re done. But if you want to make it visible to the outside world, you’ll need a DNS service. Oh, and don’t forget Lambda if you want anything “server”-side. And since every stateless system holds state, we’’ll need DynamoDB too. And so on!
This practical talk covers the end-to-end work necessary in building a traditional web app, and details every cloud server necessary to make it happen, along with the connective tissue between them.
