Welcome to the Serverless Transformation Newsletter! Every two weeks, we share our favourite resources to help you up your Serverless game and keep on top of the latest developments and best practices.
If you’re thinking of switching to Serverless, it’s always useful to hear from someone who’s been there. In this must-read, Payam Moghaddam writes about the journey at Galvanize, after they decided to go all in early last year.
Although we’re not surprised by the net benefit – “without a doubt, our transition to Serverless has opened up a ton of product opportunities and has increased our rate of innovation” – it’s interesting to read about the challenges they faced along the way.
(And we love the graphics to help you decide how urgent each challenge is…)
Lee James Gilmore has written up a 5-minute introduction to Lambda Destinations – which let you automatically route success/failure outcomes from your lambda to another AWS service (such as SQS or EventBridge) without having to write the glue code.
