AWS re:Invent 2017: [REPEAT] Designing Microservices with Serverless (SRV310-R)

Published on Nov 29, 2017

When designing microservices there are a number of things to think about. Just for starters, the bounds of their functionality, how they communicate with their dependencies, and how they provide an interface for their own consumers. Serverless technologies such as AWS Lambda change paradigms around code structure, usage of libraries, and how you deploy and manage your applications. In this session, we show you how by combining microservices and serverless technologies, you can achieve the ultimate flexibility and agility that microservices aim for, while providing business value in how serverless greatly reduces operational overhead and cost. In addition, National Geographic will share how it built its NG1 platform using a serverless, microservices architecture. The NG1 platform provides National Geographic consumers with content personalized to their preferences and behaviors in an intuitive, easy-to-use way on smartphones.
