Serverless Development with Jeremy Daly

Serverless tools have come a long way since the release of AWS Lambda in 2014. Serverless apps were originally architected around Lambda, with the functions-as-a-service being used to glue together larger pieces of functionality and API services.

Today, many of the common AWS services such as API Gateway and DynamoDB have functionality built in to be able to respond to events. These services can use Amazon EventBridge to connect to each other. In many cases, a developer does not need AWS Lambda to glue services together in order to build an event-driven application.

Jeremy Daly is the host of the Serverless Chats podcast, a show about patterns and strategies in serverless architecture. Jeremy joins the show to talk about modern serverless development, and the new tools available in the AWS ecosystem.
