JavaLand 2017 Serverless AWS
Raw nots from Niko Köbler's talk.
Arrived late due to lunch choice.
API Gateway. Hides possible multiple service calls. Kinda like ESB.
DynamoDB. Fully managed NoSQL datasource. Document oriented. Pay by read/write/capacity units and used storage, not by time.
Used with Amazon Alexa. Programs in Alexa are called "skills".
Amazon Lambda has some competition: AzureFunctions, Google CloudFunctions, IBM Bluemix with OpenWhisk. Each offers different language bindings.
Introducing the Serverless Framework. Looks pretty clean.
Showed how it looks using the AWS web UI. Then went into postman and showed how to interact with the API.
I liked how there is no Docker in this whole thing.
