Architecture as Text: Setup AWS Lambda, API Gateway, SNS, and DynamoDB on Easy Mode

With functions as a service, cloud providers have signaled the smallest billable unit of computation is a single function execution. It’s a beautifully simple idea, rejecting the metaphor of a server, and freeing developers to design smaller and simpler services. We can iterate on our code with a high degree of isolation, without fear of affecting other parts of the system; deploy systems in seconds with zero downtime; and always be available regardless of load.

However, building serverless-y apps is very new and as such fought with early days complexity:

  • Configuration tooling was designed for the last generation of computing metaphors (and often lags behind the releases of new functionality)
  • AWS is massive and overwhelming with many similar, but not the same, products
  • The web console is confusing, with divergent interfaces between interlocking services
  • Deep proprietary knowledge is required to configure and maintain common infrastructure primitives

In this talk Brian will walk you through a new approach to architecting applications with plain text using arc.codes to create apps in minutes and subsequently deploy in seconds with zero downtime and unprecedented availability.
