We had to build a fast and reliable API for a public-facing phone application. Why use a shiny new technology to build this API when there are already proven ways to do it?
In this talk I will explore why we decided to use AWS Lambdas and how it was different from developing and deploying a “conventional" API. Hear about lessons learned throughout the journey, from just playing with Lambdas at home through to successfully shipping a functional product.
