Full session (30 minutes)

The rise of serverless computing platforms is a major force that creates new opportunities (and, of course, risks). In this talk we will focus on the LANDIS stack which emerges as a dominant pattern for quickly delivering applications and services that are inexpensive but, at the same time, are inherently scalable and reliable.

Specifically, LANDIS stands for: Lambda API Gateway Node DynamoDB Identity (Pool) Static (web-site hosting)

Discussing the various components of this stack, we will cover patterns, practices and pitfalls. For instance, we will explore topics such as: is API Gateway always needed; why is Node the recommended runtime for the backend (Lambda); how to protect yourself from financial exhaustion; codebase structure; and, the elephant in the room: cold starts.
