Serverless services, like AWS Lambda, have been proven useful to solve a wide range of problems, and its use is growing rapidly. Recently, the possibility to use the PHP runtime in Lambda was added, so why not trying to use our favourite framework? How can we make the most from a serverless approach? What are pros and cons? In this session we will analyze the necessary steps to set up a Symfony4 project in Lambda and deploy it.

The speech sounded a bit rehearsed, but the content was really good, and the comic interleaving of memes was funny and well calibrated. Good flow (pun intended) and narrative too.

I've found the topic really interesting, especially because I never touched it personally.

I feel this is a bit of an edge case so I had some troubles keeping focused, also because it was the end of the day. But the talk itself was very complete and to the point, so well done!
What can be improved: review your slides for some typos and english grammar mistakes.

I agree with Alessandro Lai: the speech sounded like it was learned by heart but considering this was first talk by Alessandro Minoccheri it was totally acceptable.
One thing that was misleading if lambda is not, so to speak, your cup of tea or if you have little knowledge in the topic is that only in the end you could have understood that this approach is not intended to be “application oriented” but actually “task oriented”.
My suggestion is to make a disclaimer at the very beginning and to not show the symfony app welcome demo-page (maybe also to deploy only components need for one simple talks and not the whole application?) in order to clarify intents and usage as soon as possibile.
Congrats Alessandro, very nice talk!

Cool talk, I didn't know that if is possible to use Lambda with PHP, I think will try this approach. Thank you!
