Hailed as The Future by server-smashing conference sponsors worldwide, #serverless might be an option for you, your team, or your company. But serverless – whichever of its definitions you choose – isn’t easy and creates a new set of problems to solve. The AWS Lambda platform, still the most popular option for serverless apps, is one such shiny bag of problems, even as you integrate it with the broader set of AWS services. Documentation provides some advice but its toolbox approach leaves a lot out: which tools should you use for which cases, and how do you make managing it sane? We’ll talk about when you should use Lambda (maybe not as often as you’ve been lead to believe!), how you should organize projects that use it, which tools for it are worth using, and problems to know about as you scale a Lambda infrastructure or attempt to troubleshoot one.
And, I hope, we’ll all leave with the same wistful sense that Amazon’s API Gateway could be so much simpler.
