AWS re:Invent 2016: NEW LAUNCH! Building Distributed Applications with AWS Step Functions (CMP319)
AWS Step Functions is a new, fully managed service that makes it easy to coordinate the components of distributed applications and microservices using visual workflows. Step Functions is a reliable way to coordinate components and step through the functions of your application. A graphical console helps you arrange and visualize the components of your application as a series of steps. Step Functions automatically triggers and tracks each step and retries when there are errors so that your application executes in order―and as expected―every time. This session shows how to use Step Functions to create, run, and debug multi-service applications in a matter of minutes. We also share how customers are using Step Functions to reliably build and scale multi-step applications such as order processing, report generation, and data transformation―and to innovate faster.
