An Introduction to Serverless Computing with AWS Lambda
Serverless, specifically Lambda by Amazon Web Services, is experiencing rapid adoption amongst our enterprise client base.
This rate of adoption surprised us, as enterprises can be risk averse and slow to adopt transformational technology.
However, the benefits are so compelling that serverless is hitting the prime time fairly quickly. We see it as finally delivering on the benefits of platform as a service - allowing developers to concentrate on truly differentiating application tier logic with minimal effort invested into managing middleware and infrastructure.
To help people understand serverless, Contino principal consultant Henry Bell has written a brief paper which describes the contents and provide a tutorial for those looking to get started. The paper covers:
- Advantages of the Serverless Model
- Serverless Model Watchpoints
- Lambda Use Cases
- Frameworks to Support Serverless Applications with Lambda
- Creating Your First Serverless App: A Tutorial
- Deploying the Service
- Example CI/CD Pipeline for Lambda
