Talk 1:

"Don't Wait for Functionless - Write Less Functions Instead."

Serverless is a great platform and lambda is an amazing technology, but, are we often get carried away in the early excitement of adopting serverless and then fall into the trap of becoming a lambda factory where it limits our thinking and vision to see only the lambda functions? Well, this happens to all of us who do serverless, in particular to those who start fresh on their serverless journey.

This talk is aimed at the very same concerns and to enable our thinking to find ways to write less functions. Citing examples from AWS Cloud, in this talk, I will walk you through the services, the patterns and the architectures that we often overlook but can play the part in reducing the lambda footprint.

Talks like this are eye openers to engineers and architects. The takeaway point of this talk is about writing less functions and being productive. Hope for a function-less future but, for now, start the journey with less functions!
