Author of Running Serverless, Impact Mapping, Specification by Example and a few more books… Working on MindMup and Claudia.js. One of the 2019 AWS Serverless Heroes.
Serverless platforms are built for throughput, not for latency. One of the key risks, and most common complains when moving to hosted function code services such as AWS Lambda, is that it could make request processing slower. This talk is a practical demo of five important architectural ideas to make request processing lightning fast with serverless deployments, based on authors experience building a document collaboration platform deployed on AWS Lambda since 2016. You will learn both how to make an application better for users, and how to save a lot of money on operational costs.
