In the middle of 2015, Expedia started using AWS Lambda for serverless computing. We built boilerplate templates in Node.js, Java, and Python so development teams could build and deploy serverless applications into AWS. Currently, we have 300 AWS Lambda functions processing 40 million invocations per day.
In this session, we will discuss how development teams use boilerplate templates to create serverless applications with Amazon API Gateway and AWS Lambda and how they deploy them to AWS. We will cover patterns, architectural design choices, and the benefits — like cost, scale, availability, and operations — of running serverless applications.
