Workshop: Hands-On Session: Serverless Kickstarter with AWS Lambda

Lars Roewekamp, open knowledge

Though it isn’t exactly the “new kid on the cloud block” anymore, to many the question of what serverless exactly means still stands. And what are the main benefits using a serverless architecture compared to other cloud-based approaches like IaaS, PaaS or BaaS?

During this in-depth session we will take a look at miscellaneous serverless solutions for a variety of different real-life scenarios and review the pros and cons of each of them. To gain a better understanding, we will build our own serverless functions from scratch and learn how they can be choreographed to build a joint solution.
