This week our serverless superhero is Jannik Wempe
, senior software engineer at Hashnode
. Jannik is a self-proclaimed serverless enthusiast, and it really shows through the content he posts on his blog
. He also engages with the community regularly on Twitter, offering high value lessons from things that he works on and sharing important serverless updates and threads. Thank you Jannik for being so active in the community and helping others!
Software engineers are curious by nature. Many that I know aren’t a big fan of “magic”, meaning they have to know exactly how something works before accepting it as viable. Julian Wood
wrote an amazing piece on AWS Lambda governance and guardrails
that talks specifics about every major component of Lambda. Often-times Lambda feels like magic with the way that it scales, communicates with other services, and persists data across invocations. But Julian has helped clarify that significantly for us.
Chances are you have heard of Amazon CloudFront before. But did you know how much power it has for providing serious performance boosts to your website? Jones Zachariah Noel
tells us all about it in his blog post Amazon Cloudfront for your tech stack
. He goes through some major features, explains use cases for them, and shows you how to set them up.
Last week on Serverless Office Hours, Julian Wood
and Matteo Rinaudo
give us all the details on AWS CloudFormation Hooks
. They talk about why they are useful, the feature set of hooks, and walk us through a valuable example of setting it up via Infrastructure as Code.
An exciting new release came to Serverless Land
last week. You can now view and share serverless snippets
with the community. Snippets are essentially little GitHub gists that show how to do something as a best practice. This will be an incredible library once the inventory gets built up a bit.
I am always on the lookout for the best content being created each week. I read tons of articles and watch videos on serverless every week and what you see above is the best of the best. Thank you all for putting out such high quality work to help serve the community. You make assembling a newsletter like this easy, interesting, and a great opportunity to learn!
