AWS re:Invent 2017: State Machines in the Wild! How Customers use AWS Step Functions (SRV306)
AWS Step Functions makes it easy to coordinate AWS Lambda functions, run business workflows, and automate operations using state machines. The product has been live in the field for a year now, and it’s time to learn from what people are doing with it. In this session, we’ll present a series of innovative, high-impact, and just plain crazy applications of state machines from all sorts of customers. Guest-star Coca-Cola will show how they used Step Functions to support vending loyalty programs and product nutrition syndication. Managing application state is a central problem of building the serverless apps of the future; learn how Step Functions does it simply and scalably. Warning: there will be code!
