A few tips that i learned along the way on how to build production-grade lambdas using AWS: testing, logging, metrics, tracing, infrastructure as code, code-reuse, frameworks and more! Writing Lambdas is quite easy, at the end of the day it is just a function, right?! But writing GOOD production-grade lambdas, well that is an entirely other story. In this talk, I will share some of the tips and tricks that I learned building Lambda functions in Node.js during the last 6 years. We will talk about code organisation and code reuse, testing, logging, metrics, tracing, infrastructure as code and more.

Talk interesting and well exposed

Really good talk and informative, though it overlapped with the talk after it in terms of content.

I really enjoyed this: it was content that was new to me but I didn’t feel like an idiot for not being already connected. The explanations of the concepts were very well done, as was the data.
I didn’t feel the weight of the boilerplate during the presentation to then feel invested in the resolution, but I understood it. The only thing I’d have liked to see on top was a concrete context: what is a case where I’d use a lambda, what’s the event, and then I follow the flow. But as-is I really enjoyed the talk.
